Queens Park Rangers manager Mark Warburton has rebuffed claims that he could be replaced by Tim Sherwood as the R’s head coach.
Mark Warburton Denies Claims Tim Sherwood Could Replace Him at Queens Park Rangers
Sherwood Worked Alongside Les Ferdinand
Tim Sherwood had been considered for the role at Loftus Road in the past. This is largely down to his relationship with the Rangers Director of Football, Les Ferdinand. The pair worked together at Tottenham Hotspur and reports suggest the duo could link up once again.
For now, though, under-pressure Warburton insists that the position is his and, despite talks regarding his future, the board are willing to back him in the transfer window.
Speaking to West London Sport, the R’s boss said: “There are always rumours in football. You have to be thick-skinned to be a manager. My job has apparently been taken nine times in the last few days.
“All you do is come to work every day and do the best job you can. As long as you do that you can go home at night and sleep comfortably.”
After having the conversation with the board about his future, Warburton looks set to continue as manager but knows he needs to turn things around.
He added: “We speak about the January transfer window, the plans – we had a Zoom call yesterday. We crack on as a normal.
“It goes from a feast to famine very quickly. You look at some of the names who three or four weeks ago were being touted as champions and now their jobs are being threatened. That’s football.
“You have to have thick skin, get on with it, and as long as you can home at night the best you can be then you’re in a decent place.”
Queens Park Rangers This Season
It’s been a disappointing campaign for QPR. Warburton’s side have failed to win on their last eight matches, dropping down to 20th in the Championship as a result.
The club have only registered four wins in the league this season and find themselves just two points above the bottom three following their recent decline.
