Caretaker manager Steve Kean will not be in the running for the permanent job as Blackburn Rovers.
Kean, formerly the first-team coach, has been put in charge of the team following the surprise decision to sack Sam Allardyce on Monday.
The club’s new owners have revealed it could take a couple of months for them to name Allardyce’s successor, and it was thought that Kean could land the job should he impress in that time.
But, while insisting the board has every faith in Keane for the time being, Venky’s chairman Anuradha Desai has confirmed he will not be considered for the post full-time.
Desai said: “We are looking for a manager in the future but that is going to take time. We don't want to make a hurried decision.
“We want to understand, meet a lot of people, take opinions and study the scenario. For the time being we have given Steve Kean the job.
“I can assure you he is the guy who is hands-on, he knows the strengths and the weaknesses of the players.
“He has been working hard with the players and I am pretty sure he will do an excellent job.”
