This weekend’s clash with Nottingham Forest may end up becoming the writing on the wall for former Chelsea striker Hasselbaink, with it reported Sherwood will come in if QPR endure another defeat.
QPR have lost their last two Championship matches and fans have become increasingly frustrated with the displays of Hasselbaink’s side, with supporters expressing their anger with the club’s unimpressive form and style of play.
Sherwood, a close friend of QPR Director of Football Les Ferdinand, is keen to get back into management quickly after a woeful spell with Aston Villa in the Premier League last season- and he came close to the job at Loftus Road previously.
The former Spurs boss almost got the job back in 2015 when Harry Redknapp was replaced by Chris Ramsey but, this time around, the path to the dugout at Loftus Road has been carved out for him.
Hasselbaink’s form with QPR hasn’t been the only issue this season, as the Dutchman was caught up in The Telegraph’s investigation, which caused England boss Sam Allardyce to lose his job, and things have gone downhill for the 44-year-old former Burton Albion boss ever since.
Sat 14th in the Championship, with just five wins from 15 matches, QPR could turn their season around with a positive run of form as they currently sit just five points behind the play-off places.
