The Lowdown: Cifuentes linked with QPR
The Hoops are on the hunt for Michael Beale’s long-term successor and have been linked with a move for Hammarby head coach Marti Cifuentes in recent days.
Reports have suggested that the R’s made initial contact with Hammarby to request permission to speak with the Spaniard right away.
However, it still seems as if the club are drawing up a list of targets closer to home which includes Ainsworth.
The Latest: Ainsworth in the frame
The Evening Standard shared a story on Friday regarding the club’s search for a new manager.
They claimed that a move is being considered for Chelsea coach Anthony Barry, before adding that Ainsworth is also in the frame for the position.
Ainsworth back at QPR?
Yes, just what we need!
The Verdict: One to watch?
Ainsworth may not be at the top of the club’s wish list, but it seems as if this could be one to keep an eye on over the coming days.
He has been a player, player-coach, assistant manager and caretaker manager for QPR, so it could come full circle by succeeding Beale, although he would need to end his nine-and-a-half-year association with Wycombe for that to happen.
