Jon Dahl Tomasson's departure from Blackburn has finally been confirmed with the club sitting 18th in the Championship table.
talkSPORT revealed earlier in the week that the former AC Milan striker was on the verge of leaving after 18 months spent at Ewood Park.
And we also told you how the 47-year-old could be set for a swift return to the dugout after staking his interest in the vacant Sweden job.
Ahead of Saturday's clash at home against Stoke, Blackburn have now announced that the Danish icon and his assistant coach Remy Reijnierse have departed.
A club statement read: «Jon Dahl Tomasson has today left his position as Blackburn Rovers’ Head Coach by mutual consent.
»Tomasson arrived at Ewood Park on a three-year contract in June 2022 and brought an attacking brand of football that saw us go close to a play-off spot last season, whilst also progressing to the latter stages of both domestic cup competitions.
«However, it has been mutually agreed that the Dane will step away from his role, along with assistant coach Remy Reijnierse, with immediate effect.
»Rovers wish to thank both Jon and Remy for all their efforts over the past 18 months and we wish them both well in their future careers.
«The search for a successor is now underway and the club will provide no further comment until an appointment is announced.»
It is understood that his relationship with the Blackburn board had been uneasy since he came close to leaving in the summer.
And he was also believed to be unhappy with their January transfer dealings, which saw Adam Wharton sold to Crystal Palace in £22million deal.
Tomasson led Blackburn to the brink of the play-offs last season, but they are languishing in 18th place after a winless run of eight matches.
