QPR Director of Football Les Ferdinand explains what Hasselbaink offers that Chris Ramsey didn't

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink was presented as QPR's new manager on Monday.

Queens Park Rangers Director of Football Les Ferdinand says Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink's experience of managing abroad is an advantage he has over predecessor Chris Ramsey, as quoted by Get West London.

The R's parted company with Ramsey back in November, and have waited almost a month to appoint his replacement in the Loftus Road dugout.

Former boss Neil Warnock has returned to the club as caretaker manager, and whilst he has done a superb job, he hasn't been handed the full-time role as QPR boss.

Instead, QPR have brought ex-Chelsea striker Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink back to West London, with the former Dutch international leaving Burton Albion for the R's.

Hasselbaink took Burton to promotion from League Two last season, and had made an impressive start to life in League One, establishing himself as one of the most exciting managers in the Football League before making his move.

During Hasselbaink's introductory press conference on Monday, QPR Director of Football Les Ferdinand was asked why Hasselbaink has been brought in to replace predecessor Ramsey - and he claims that his experience abroad was a major factor.

"When you look at Jimmy, people will talk about Burton, but he’s also worked abroad," said Ferdinand ."Perhaps Chris Ramsey hasn’t had that," he added.

Hasselbaink spent just over a year managing Belgian club Royal Antwerp, winning 37% of his games before making the move to Burton Albion.

QPR clearly value that time managing abroad very highly, with Ferdinand highlighting how Ramsey couldn't bring that to the role - and the R's have to hope that they have made the right choice in Hasselbaink after years of instability in the dugout.
