The vacant managerial post at Loftus Road has drawn much interest from the world`s media, but a Spanish journalist believes Juande Ramos could be the new man at the helm in W12.

Rumours have been rife at QPR ever since the departure of Iain Dowie, and names such as Roberto Mancini and Terry Venables have been mooted as possible replacements.

Guillem Ballague has reported on his website guillemballague.com that QPR have approached the former Sevilla and Tottenham Hotspur boss, but it is unknown as to whether he would be interested in managing in the second tier of English football.

Ramos would fit into the structure that is in place at Loftus Road with a continental style football set-up, involving Gianni Paladini as sporting director.

In a year at Tottenham Hotspur, Ramos took charge of 54 games, winning 21, losing 17 and drawing 16, picking up the Carling Cup and European football in the process, giving him a win percentage of 38%. Only a poor start to the season cost him his role at Spurs.

  • To be frank it says alot about the players themselves that they play so badly under one manager, and miraculous change once he’s gone.

  • Be warned Rangers fans, the bloke is a clown, if left in post until Xmas we would have joined you in the Championship next season. Turned good players into no-hopers, you dont want him, trust me.

  • No disrespect, to QPR or the championship, but Ramos struggled to adapt to the english game in the prem, I think he would find it doubly difficult in the championship to get his methods over, this has nothing against Rangers, but about Ramos’s ability to adapt. I think you would be better served looking at someone like Gary Johnson, Steve Tillson or Roberto Martinez, all potentially excellent managers, who know the english game and the league.

  • ramos would be seriously bad news for us which ever way you look at it. He’s really not cut out the the english game, best for every one if he just goes back to spain.
    Have to say there are some scary candidates for new manager out there, big sam, o’leary,….. heaven help us !

  • Do you guys see Briatore as a problem for any manager? I get the impression he interferes and works to the detriment of his manager. I think he should go british or someone with experience in the english game. Dowie may not have worked, but who else has since FBs arrival??

  • He will go for someone that slots into a continental system. Iain Dowie was appointed on the recommendation of our sporting director, a good english manager but not in our system, and conflict was evident from the start. Briatore wouldn’t be a problem for any “coach” such as Juande Ramos who has worked under a director of football previously.

  • Who is your director of football? A director of football can work with any manager as long as the peramitors are set in stone and everyone knows what the other is doing. I still maintain that many english managers would be more than happy with a DoF if they have a level of control they are happy with..

  • Our “Sporting Director” is Gianni Paladini, who is praised by some and hated by others. No-one quite knows what it means as it’s not a title that has definitive roles, it varies from club to club. At our club Paladini resembles a Mr. Yateman figure from dad’s army – hillarious to watch him scrambling round Briatore’s limo before games.
