Speaking after QPR’s thumping 4-0 win over Swansea City on Saturday evening, caretaker manager John Eustace insisted that he is not in the running for the vacant managerial role at Loftus Road.
QPR caretaker manager John Eustace has said that he is not in the running for the vacant managerial role with the London based club, after he led them to a 4-0 demolition of Swansea City on Saturday afternoon.
Eustace took the place of the recently sacked Steve McClaren and has overseen a 4-0 defeat to Norwich City, a 0-0 draw with Millwall and a 4-0 win over Swansea City. He is a popular figure with the players and fans were left impressed after he oversaw Saturday’s win.
However, the former Derby County midfielder has insisted that he is not intending on taking the permanent manager role with the club.
“I took over for as long as it takes for them to find a new manager,” Eustace said to West London Sport. “I haven’t applied. Les asked me to help the club until they find somebody and that’s what I’m doing.
“I’m happy in the role and there are no problems there. All I’m thinking about is preparing the lads for Friday. We’ll get the lads rested over the next couple of days and if I’m still here on Tuesday then we’ll be preparing properly for the game on Friday.
“The boys have been excellent and their performance today was excellent.”
The main contender for the vacant role is believed to be Tim Sherwood, but reports have claimed that The R’s have held talks with Michael Appleton, while former Nottingham Forest boss Mark Warburton is also under consideration.
