Key QPR figure responds to speculation surrounding manager

Published

on

QPR co-chairman Tony Fernandes has taken to Twitter to dismiss rumours that Ian Holloway could be set to lose his job at Loftus Road.

A report in The Sun suggested the former Blackpool boss was under serious pressure and failure to beat Bolton next time out could see him sacked.

However, Fernandes revealed his support for his manager on social media.

Zero facts about Ollie. Not even a second of thought this. This is a project and we want stability. Ollie is doing a grand job.”

A 1-1 draw at Sunderland on Saturday leaves the R’s in 15th position, just four points from the bottom three. Yet, more worryingly, it extended their winless run to six games.

In fairness to Holloway, he has had a terrible injury list to contend with, something that Fernandes acknowledged.

Every match we compete and we have been unlucky with injuries. Yet squad has done well,” he tweeted.

The draw in the North East meant Holloway’s men are still to win on the road this season, a run which they will be desperate to end at the Macron Stadium on Saturday.

The Verdict

The speculation surrounding Ian Holloway seemed strange given QPR haven’t had a dismal start. They’ve performed reasonably well and have had severe injury problems.

Therefore, Fernandes’ tweet will be very welcome for R’s fans who want stability after years of mismanagement and uncertainty.

Holloway will know that the away form needs to improve but it would be crazy for the club to make a decision like that at such a stage in the season.
