Mark Hughes sacked in advance of next defeat


Mark Hughes has been sacked as manager of QPR, with tomorrow’s comprehensive defeat against Man United proving the final straw for the club’s board of directors

Assistant manager Mark Bowen and coach Eddie Niedzwiecki will now take charge of Saturday’s loss against Manchester United.

Tomorrow’s defeat, which has been described as ‘disorganised and lacklustre’ by Match of the Day pundit Alan Hansen, has led to the Loftus Road club losing patience with Hughes.

“The defeat against Manchester United in tomorrow’s Premier League match has left the board of directors with very little choice but to make a change,” read a club statement.

Hughes sacked

Hughes has spoken of his disappointment at having his contract terminated and insisted he was not given enough time to start the job he’d finished.

“I had hoped that the board would have waited until after the defeats against Sunderland, Aston Villa and Wigan before making this decision,” he said.

“I still have ambitions that far exceed my managerial abilities, and I hope to get back into managing as soon as possible.”

“Hopefully at a club that hasn’t seen my record as a manager.”

QPR are believed to have approached Harry Redknapp as they look to replace a manager who spends ridiculous amounts of money without winning anything with a manager who spends ridiculous amounts of money without winning anything.

“It will be a like for like replacement,” the club statement confirmed.
