Next Port Vale manager – Hasselbaink 2/1 favourite to take over at Vale Park

Queens Park Rangers have been enjoying some decent Championship results of late and it would appear that Ian Holloway’s approach is starting to pay dividends, however things weren’t too good at the start of the season for Rangers and following a dismal set of results it was deemed necessary by the board to dispense with the services of Jimmy-Floyd Hasselbaink.

Queens Park Rangers have been enjoying some decent Championship results of late and it would appear that Ian Holloway’s approach is starting to pay dividends, however things weren’t too good at the start of the season for Rangers and following a dismal set of results it was deemed necessary by the board to dispense with the services of Jimmy-Floyd Hasselbaink.

As such the Dutchman is in the market for a new job and the bookies feel that he would be the ideal candidate to fill the vacant position at Port Vale following the sacking of Bruno Ribiero at Vale Park. The Valiants struggled with their own set of poor results earlier in the season and given that they have managed a mere two wins in their last nine outings in all competitions, now would be a very good time to find a successor to Ribiero.

Hasselbaink has proven credentials at lower-league sides having managed Burton Albion and steered them in the direction of the Championship, however following his spell at Loftus Road it may be that he won’t relish a move down to League One and the Valiants may need to look elsewhere.

Nevertheless whilst Hasselbaink’s odds may have slipped from 1/2 to 2/1 with BetVictor, he remains firm favourite to take over at Vale Park with Billy Davies, Micky Adams and Ronnie Moore far behind at 16/1 apiece. Davies left Nottingham Forest following his sacking in March 2014, a 5-0 defeat to local rivals Derby County the last straw for a board which was coming under increased pressure to let their manager go. Micky Adams managed Port Vale on two separate occasions and would certainly prove a popular choice amongst fans while Ronnie Moore also possesses proven credentials following spells with Tranmere Rovers, Hartlepool, Rotherham United and Oldham Athletic.
