Paul Konchesky offers his opinion on Queens Park Rangers boss Chris Ramsey

QPR 1

Queens Park Rangers defender Paul Konchesky says that Chris Ramsey reminds him of Nigel Pearson.

Paul Konchesky has told the Killburn Times that Chris Ramsey will be able to deliver success to Queens Park Rangers, despite his poor record. 

Ramsey has won just seven of his 26 matches as QPR manager, but Konchesky insists that he is enjoying working for him. 

The experienced defender says that Ramsey has a very similar demeanour to his old boss Nigel Pearson, who he worked with at Leicester City. 

“They’re very similar managers," Konchesky said. "They’ve both worked for the FA so have got that style of coaching in them. They get their message across in a certain 
way.

“Last year Nigel was maybe a bit stressed with things that had gone on and was a bit outspoken, but I thoroughly enjoyed working under him and we as a club enjoyed a lot of success too.

“I think all managers have got a fuse, but I think it’s when and where it’s appropriate to use it.

“From my time working with Chris so far he seems to understand that balance, and I’m confident this club can achieve success under him.”

Konchesky joined QPR this summer, as they started to build a squad capable of competing in the Championship.

The 34-year-old's arrival rather went against QPR's trend in the transfer market, where they have targeted young and hungry players, rather than experience.

However, Ramsey clearly felt that Konchesky had plenty to offer his team, despite his advancing years, and the full-back will be keen to repay his new manager's faith.

QPR have not won any of their last four fixtures, and they are currently sitting in mid-table in the Championship, with supporters starting to put pressure on Ramsey to turn their form around.
