Burton manager brushes off QPR speculation



Burton Albion manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has distanced himself from the vacant manager position at Queens Park Rangers, according to Sports Mole.


Could Burton boss Jimmy Floyd-Hasselbaink be set to stay at the Pirelli Stadium?

The highly-rated manager is the favourite to takeover at Loftus Road but has acted fast to distance himself from the job. This is after the impressive work the 43-year-old has done over the past 12 months with the Brewers.

Hasselbaink took over at Burton after Gary Rowett departed to join Birmingham City last year, and has since guided the club to League One.

The Brewers currently sit third in the league and back-to-back promotions is looking possible.

‘There’s been no approach from QPR – it’s not relevant,’ said the former Chelsea striker when he was asked whether the Championship side had approached him.

The Dutchman has had to deny on a number of occasions that any approach has been made about a move to Loftus Road. However, the chance to manage in the Championship could be too big an opportunity to turn down for Hasselbaink.

QPR are expected to appoint a new manager in the near future as they look to improve on their season so far.

On the pitch, QPR are 12th in the Championship with 23 points from 18 games after relegation from the Premier League last summer.
