Speaking to talkSPORT (aired Wednesday, 07:40), Stuart Pearce has responded when asked if he would be interested in taking the managers job at either Fulham or QPR, with both Championship sides looking for a new boss.
When asked if either QPR or Fulham will interest him, Pearce said: “Two very good jobs. The Fulham job definitely [would interest me], without a doubt.”
Pearce was most recently manager of Nottingham Forest, although he was sacked in February of this year after a poor run of form which left the club in mid-table.
Prior to his spell with Forest, Pearce had been in charge of Manchester City and England’s Under-21 side, as well as a one game caretaker role in charge of the senior England team.
He has never truly impressed in any job he has been at, and hiring him would be a bold move for a club to make considering his previous record.
However, both Fulham and QPR are searching for a new manager, and if their search is fruitless, Pearce may be one of the few managers left with Championship experience who would be open to moving to West London.
Pearce has admitted he would definitely be keen on taking the Fulham job if they approach him, and although he made no such claim about a switch to Loftus Road, QPR surely possess the financial strength to tempt the former English international to a management job with the Rs.
It is just a question of whether either club want to hire him.
