Blackburn Rovers have confirmed the departure of assistant manager John Jensen from the club.

A statement on Rovers' website said the 46-year-old former Denmark international was leaving after joining the club on an initial six-month deal in January.

"John Jensen is to leave his position as assistant manager with Blackburn Rovers," the statement said.

"The club would like to thank John for his efforts over the last nine months and offer him best wishes for the future."

Blackburn have made a poor start to the Premier League season, taking just four points from six games to leave them third from bottom.
