Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink posts a series of messages on Twitter after becoming Queens Park Rangers boss

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink was announced as Queens Park Rangers manager last week.

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.

The Dutchman says that it has always been a dream of his to be in charge at QPR, and he is hoping to help them climb the Championship table over the coming months.

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.
