STEVE Kean is one of the contenders still in the running to be the next Millwall manager, NewsAtDen understands.
Kean resigned as Blackburn Rovers boss last September following a largely unpopular two-year reign at Ewood Park, but the 45-year-old is well-respected within the game and is eager to return to work.
Reports earlier this month suggested incoming Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho wants Kean to join his backroom staff, such is the admiration for his ability as a coach.
The Lions are on the lookout for a thick-skinned artsandhealth.ie/sildenafil/ manager with a point to prove – and Kean ticks both of those boxes given his turbulent spell in Lancashire, during which he worked under intense pressure from chaotic owners and disillusioned fans.
He quit last season with Rovers third in the Championship table – claiming his position had become "untenable." Millwall are expected to appoint their new manager next week.
