Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has posted a series of messages on social media site Twitter after having a week to settle into his job at Queens Park Rangers.
Hasselbaink was announced as the R’s new manager last week, and he is excited by the challenge that faces him at Loftus Road.
I feel absolutely privileged to be handed the opportunity to manage Queens Park Rangers #QPR— Jimmy Floyd (@jf9hasselbaink) December 10, 2015
They are a club steeped in history and one I have always taken a keen interest in and privately harboured dreams of managing on day #QPR— Jimmy Floyd (@jf9hasselbaink) December 10, 2015
It is my intention to leave no stone unturned to ensure this club move forward and meet with success. #QPR— Jimmy Floyd (@jf9hasselbaink) December 10, 2015
The overwhelming messages of support from the fans following my appointment gives me good cause to be very optimistic going forward. #QPR— Jimmy Floyd (@jf9hasselbaink) December 10, 2015
Hasselbaink takes over at QPR with the squad in good form, following Neil Warnock’s time in temporary charge.
Warnock guided QPR to back-to-back victories in his final two games in charge, meaning that the squad should be full of confidence.
Hasselbaink’s task will be to build on that momentum, and help the side continue moving up the Championship table.
QPR are currently perched in 12th place in England’s second tier, but they have made no secret of their desire to be promoted, meaning Hasselbaink will be under pressure to hit the ground running.
The former Burton Albion boss’s first match in charge at Loftus Road comes on Saturday, when he will be in the dugout for his side’s match against Burnley.
