Chris Ramsey eager to be QPR manager, however Tim Sherwood’s appointment looks imminent
Disappointment looms for Chris Ramsey
February 9th, 2015
Caretaker gaffer Chris Ramsey has made no secret of the fact that he would love to take on the vacant managerial position at QPR on a permanent basis, however the bookies are taking a dim view of his chances and he would appear to be well advised to prepare himself for a disappointment.
Harry Redknapp quit the post last week due to medical reasons and Ramsey was given control in a temporary capacity. The 52-year-old has admitted that he would relish the chance of being appointed on a longer-term basis.
“Obviously, from my personal point of view, as a coach, and someone who has gone the long route round, if you got offered a chance to coach a Premier League team you would have to jump at the chance, wouldn’t you?,” he stated when quizzed by reporters about the vacant position.
“I’d jump at the chance if I was offered the job but more important for me is that QPR are above the line on the final day of the season, regardless of whether I am here or ehwther it is anybody else.”
Chris Ramsey is currently best odds of 16/1 to be offered the position and he will still be in charge for Tuesday evening’s journey to Sunderland. Nevertheless, we expect that this will be his final match in charge.
Indeed, Tim Sherwood has been a leading contender since Redknapp quit and is now as low as 1/10 with some bookies to be the next manager anytime soon.
