Berg's £2.25m compensation

Blackburn Rovers are facing imminent legal action over money owing to sacked manager Michael Appleton, after an English High Court judge ordered them to pay his predecessor Henning Berg £40,000 a day – a larger amount than the earnings of the highest paid Premier League player – for his 57-day tenure which secured the Championship club six points.

Berg will receive £2.25m – which equates to £39,473 a day – after Judge Mark Pelling threw out the case which has heaped humiliation on Blackburn. The judge dismissed as "unarguable" their claim that managing director Derek Shaw was a maverick with no authority to agree to Berg's lucrative severance terms, also ordering the club to pay £20,000 for bringing the case.

It is understood that Rovers are seven days away from being pursued through the courts over the non-payment of compensation to Appleton – who lasted just 10 days longer than Berg. Appleton is understood to be awaiting written confirmation of the termination agreement from Rovers, who sacked him after 15 games. If the club fail to agree terms with the 37-year-old, the League Managers' Association (LMA) will take action. (© Independent News Service)
