Jermaine Jenas: Chris Ramsey could be QPR's dream manager

The former Queens Park Rangers midfielder thinks Tony Fernandes could have already found the ideal replacement for Harry Redknapp.

Despite Tim Sherwood long being linked with a return to management at QPR, the former Spurs boss is reportedly now out of the running to replace the recently-resigned Harry Redknapp.

Michael Laudrup has consequently - seemingly out of nowhere - become the bookmakers' favourite to take over at Loftus Road.

But former QPR midfielder Jermaine Jenas thinks another coach could be chairman Tony Fernandes' dream manager (Fernandes had earlier tweeted the phrase).

Indeed, the now BBC pundit believes that, after the R's' shock 2-0 win at Sunderland, caretaker boss Chris Ramsey could be the man to replace Redknapp on a permanent basis.

Form-wise, QPR's victory is perhaps the biggest shock of them all. In 11 previous away games, the west London side had picked up 11 straight losses.

Ramsey's first in charge, however, yielded not only a win but a clean sheet. And that followed a clash against an in-form Southampton side where QPR very almost picked up a point and another clean sheet.

Expectations, then, may have changed rather quickly with the Loftus Road outfit's first away win of the season. Perhaps that's the work of a dream manager, after all.
