Temporary Blackburn boss Steve Kean says he is interested in replacing Sam Allardyce at Ewood Park.
Allardyce was sacked on Monday with first-team coach Kean taking over for Saturday's game against Premier League basement side West Ham.
"I would be delighted to have the job. If I do a good job, perhaps I will come into consideration," he said.
"It's an exciting time for the club. They have big plans and if I can be part of it, I will be delighted."
Blackburn became the first Indian-owned Premier League club when they were taken over by the Rao family, who own the Venky's group, in a £43m deal in November.
Although Allardyce had guided Rovers to 13th place in the table, it was not deemed good enough for the owners who sacked him after almost two years in charge at Ewood Park.
His departure led to criticism of the owners by many leading football figures amid rumours of them showing an interest appointing Diego Maradona as manager and confirmation that a fifth-place finish was an unlikely target for Rovers this term.
But Kean, 43, is hoping that his experience, which includes a spell as a coach with Reading before becoming Chris Coleman's assistant at Fulham, Real Sociedad and Coventry City and then joining Blackburn in August 2009, can help him.
"Hopefully it [the role] will be in a position that suits the bit I am good at, which is being out on the training ground, developing players and building teams. If that is the manager's job, great," he admitted.
