Mark Warburton was left unfazed following reports that Tim Sherwood could replace him in the dugout at Queens Park Rangers.
Warburton is skating on thin ice at the moment, with QPR winless in their last nine Championship matches.
The R’s haven’t won since the end of November, and have subsequently dropped to 20th in the Championship table, only two points above the relegation zone.
Naturally, the pressure has risen on Warburton, with many fans urging the club to part company with the 58-year-old.
The Sun reported at the weekend that the club are lining up a move for Tim Sherwood as a potential replacement for Warburton, due to his connections with Les Ferdinand.
Speaking to West London Sport, though, Warburton was left unfazed by the speculation and insists you have to have thick skin as a manager.
He said: “There are always rumours in football. You have to be thick-skinned to be a manager.
“My job has apparently been taken nine times in the last few days.
“All you do is come to work every day and do the best job you can. As long as you do that you can go home at night and sleep comfortably.”
QPR host local rivals Fulham in the third round of the FA Cup this weekend, where they will be looking to return to winning ways.
I don’t think Sherwood would be a good appointment for QPR.
Yes, Warburton is a man skating on very thin ice, and it’s unacceptable that they haven’t won since the end of November.
But he is a manager who is no fool. He has a lot of experience and will know how to turn things around.
Changing a manager at this stage of the season, when the squad needs to be strengthened and refreshed, would be a risk.
