Tony Mowbray is excited to be back in football after his appointment as the club's new Head Coach.
The 53-year-old, who has vast experience of managing in the top-flight in both England and Scotland, has agreed an 18-month contract at Ewood Park.
Mowbray wasted little time in getting to know his new surroundings at Brockhall, overseeing training this Wednesday and meeting the staff and players. And whilst he admits it has been a whirlwind few hours, he is looking forward to working hard with the squad to get Rovers moving up the table.
Speaking to Rovers PlayerHD, the new boss said: "It feels great to be here, it is good to get my tracksuit back on and get back out there.
"I've been on a sabbatical, I've been back home with my boys and my wife, but ultimately I have the football bug. I'm drenched in football, and here I am back working with players and talking with players. Trying to get across my passion and emotion for the game.
"Today has been good because I've talked to the group a lot and I hope they feel that emotion that I bring to football. I want them to be inspired, I want them to ask questions, I want them to love coming into training. I want them to feel that 'wow' we are going to learn here and are going to be better players at the end of this experience.
"That is what I want to do, I want to inspire young men to want to be better at football and obviously to help this football club win lots of games and start moving in the right direction again."
