Queens Park Rangers caretaker boss John Eustace picked up his first win against Swansea City.
Queens Park Rangers caretaker manager John Eustace says he is not interested in taking the job on full-time despite helping the side to a commanding 4-0 win over Swansea City, West London Sport report.
“I took over for as long as it takes for them to find a new manager. I haven’t applied. Les asked me to help the club until they find somebody and that’s what I’m doing,” Eustace explained.
“I’m happy in the role and there are no problems there. All I’m thinking about is preparing the lads for Friday.”
Eustace took over the reigns at QPR following the dismissal of Steve McClaren.
The former Derby County midfielder’s first game in charge was a 4-0 defeat at Norwich City, but since then they have kept two clean sheets with a 0-0 draw at Millwall following an impressive win at home to Swansea.
QPR director of football Les Ferdinand is said to be keen on Tim Sherwood becoming the club’s new manager, but no deal has yet to be concluded while financial restrictions will be in place going forward.
Meanwhile, Eustace could end up being in charge for the rest of the season with games against Blackburn Rovers, Derby County, Nottingham Forest and Sheffield Wednesday still to play.
The 39-year-old hanged up his boots in 2015 and went on to have a short stint in charge of Kidderminster Harriers in the national league before joining up with McClaren at QPR as assistant boss last summer.
Eustace is a popular figure at Loftus Road and the last two results wouldn’t have done his chances of landing the Hoops job full-time any harm at all if he had a genuine interest in taking up the role.
QPR’s victory over the Swans leaves the London club 18th in the Championship table.
