QPR unveil their new manager

Queens Park Rangers have appointed Mark Warburton as the club’s new manager on a two-year contract.

The 56-year-old has signed a two-year deal at Loftus Road, replacing Steve Mcclaren who left last month.

Warburton told www.qpr.co.uk: “I am delighted and privileged to be managing this club.

“When I spoke to QPR they were very clear. They have a solid plan and know what they want. They have a long-term outlook and that appealed to me immediately.

“I am excited about the challenge that lies ahead.”

“I love seeing players who enjoy their football.

“I like players being brave in possession, understanding the first thought is to play forward and be positive.

“You have to be fit as well. Work ethic, desire, hunger, passion – all those clichés are so important for us.

“Get that right and fingers crossed we will move in the right direction.”

Director of Football Les Ferdinand said: “This is a fantastic appointment.

“We spoke with a number of excellent candidates for the position, and Mark ticked all the boxes for us.

“He loves working with younger players and developing them, and has a great understanding of the game.

“Mark is determined to be a success and we will be giving him our full support to achieve that.”

QPR chairman Amit Bhatia added: “We are all delighted to bring Mark in.

“The excellent work by John Eustace as interim manager enabled us to spend the required time speaking with suitable candidates.

“I am very pleased with how the recruitment process was carried out, as well as the end result which sees us appoint Mark as our manager.”

A further announcement regarding Warburton’s backroom staff will be made in due course.
