Martin Jol was linked with the QPR job yesterday by the Daily Mail, and Harry Redknapp spoke to talkSPORT today to react to the news, admitting that he still thinks Neil Warnock should get another crack at taking charge at Loftus Road.
When asked if Jol would be a good fit for QPR, Redknapp said: “Yeah I think he would be. I’ve got to be honest, I think Neil Warnock would do well there, having another crack at it. He’s certainly done well in the past at QPR, and I’m sure he’d like to have another go.”
Jol has years worth of experience managing across Europe’s top leagues, and has spent time in England with both Tottenham and Fulham.
Bringing him to Loftus Road would be a statement of intent by the QPR management staff, and Redknapp has admitted that he thinks Jol would be a good appointment for the Rs.
However, Redknapp - who left QPR as manager last season - has also claimed that Neil Warnock would like to be offered the job, and could do well if he takes charge of the West London team.
Warnock has led QPR to promotion from the second tier before, and he is currently in caretaker charge of the team following the sacking of Chris Ramsey. Many believe that Warnock was brought in as an advisor to Ramsey to eventually replace him, although QPR fans are certainly not convinced by the deal.
Whilst fans would agree with Redknapp’s opinion that Jol is a good appointment if QPR can hire him, few will back up the claim that Warnock would be a good appointment on a permanent basis at Loftus Road.
