“Glad it didn’t work out for him” – Ian Holloway reveals one manager he really can’t stand

Ian Holloway has recently revealed one manager that he really can’t stand and it comes with the speed of how he was replaced.

In May 2018, he was sacked as the boss of Queens Park Rangers, but was replaced under a week later by Steve McClaren.

He didn’t last long at the Loftus Road either, being in charge for less than a year as his side had a run of just one win out of 15 games.

Holloway said to The Sack Race when talking all things QPR: “I had a year of my contract remaining, which I fully wanted to see out but the club decided to dispense off my services. They honoured everything that they needed to honour with me so I’ve not got an axe to grind with anybody. The only person I don’t like in it amongst it all is Steve McClaren.

“If I saw him today I’d have to tell him exactly what I think of him. We nearly crossed paths the other week but I refused to go. It is what it is. I’ve got no other problem with anybody else, I just don’t like Steve McClaren, and those reasons are private.

“If a Chairman ever rang me and said that they wanted to talk to me about becoming their manager, they’d have to have a vacant chair. The difficult thing for a manager is you can’t ask for a job until it becomes available, but when the job becomes available some people have already been through the back door!

“I love QPR. I was gutted they got rid of me but it was an honour to manage them. I’m really pleased with the young lads they’ve got there, and I wish Mark Warburton all the best, I hope he does really well.”
