QPR will decide on the future of manager Ian Holloway this week and Portsmouth manager Kenny Jackett is in the frame to replace him, according to The Sun.
Ian Holloway is under pressure after a slow start to the season with QPR. The R’s are currently 14th in the Championship with only 3 wins from 12 games. The board apparently expect them to push for the Play-Offs this season.
Portsmouth manager Kenny Jackett is a name that is well and truly in the frame to replace Holloway. He took over at Portsmouth in the summer and his side are currently 8th in League One. The 55 year-old spent all of his playing career at Watford, playing over 300 games for the Hornets.
Jackett also spent his first season as a manager with Watford, before moving to Swansea City in 2004. After 3 years with the Swans, Jackett went to Millwall where he spent 6 successful years. Then when Wolves were relegated to League One in 2013 they turned to Jackett to bring them back up to the Championship, which he did.
Jackett was sacked by Wolves in 2016 and took over Rotherham later on in the 2016/17 season after only 5 games. He took over at Portsmouth in the summer after Pompey boss Paul Cook moved to League One rivals Wigan Athletic.
There is no doubt that Kenny Jackett is an experienced manager at Championship level. But so is Holloway, so should the QPR board give him more time or make the move for Jackett? That is a question on QPR fans’ lips.
