I have no idea what to make of this. Well, he did say he was interested in managing in the Premier League, Blackburn may be a decent enough place to start.

Does this make any sense to anyone else?

No, it must be a rumor. Hopefully for all Blackburn suporters (and players) it may not be true.

Nobody in england cares were the players, owners or managers comes from anymore. Its all about the money: Maradona means a garanty of interests around the club and a cash flow!
