Hasselbaink Statement

QPR1st Supporters’ Trust welcomes Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink to the club.

 We hope he has a long and successful time with us as manager.

We are pleased that the club does not seem to have simply thrown money at an issue – but have appointed a man who has done well in lower leagues and may well be ready to take a step up.

If he is able to motivate talent, and to build and organise a team he will do well here.  And in the year when the club is remembering that special team of 1975/6, it would be great if he can move forward to develop a team that plays competitively and with flair too.  We hope the club will give him the opportunity to develop existing talent and, in time, to bring in new young players to build an exciting team to take us forward.

We look forward to more information on the team management roles at the club. Chris Ramsey was senior coach whereas Hasselbaink is manager, with Les Ferdinand as director of football.  We would like to know which responsibilities go with which job.

We would also like to sincerely thank Neil Warnock and Kevin Blackwell for stepping in and bringing a new level of organisation to the team on the pitch.
