So what everyone was waiting to happen has finally happened. Mark Hughes is no longer QPR manager and the rumour mill has it that Harry Redknapp is their number one choice.
I don’t think it comes as any surprise that a manager that hasn’t lead his team to victory in for the first 12 games of the season and is currently propping up the rest of the league with only four points loses his job. I would have thought they would have waited until after the game against Manchester United, but they have taken the decision to get it sorted sooner rather than later.
With Harry Redknapp seemingly close to being appointed he still wouldn’t be in charge of the game against United, with that duty being left up to Mark Bowen and Eddie Niedzwiecki.
QPR released a short statement on their official website
“Mark has shown integrity and professionalism throughout his time here, but ultimately the circumstances we find ourselves in have left the Board of Directors with very little choice but to make a change.”
“The Board will now be working actively to put a new managerial structure in place as soon as possible.”
“Mark Bowen and Eddie Niedzwiecki will take charge of the R’s trip to Manchester United in the Barclays Premier League on Saturday afternoon.”
“The club will be making a further announcement in due course.”
