Henning Berg returns to Blackburn as manager


BLACKBURN, England (AP) -Blackburn manager Henning Berg says returning to the club that he won the Premier League title gives him a "good feeling."

Berg, who was hired Wednesday, was a 27-year-old defender when he won the Premier League with Blackburn in 1995. The Norwegian spent 7 1/2 years over two stints playing for the club, making nearly 300 appearances.

The 43-year-old Berg says "it gives me a good feeling to be here. I have good memories. I know a lot of people still involved with the club."

Blackburn was relegated from the Premier League in May and is in fifth place in the League Championship, trailing leader Cardiff by five points.
