Chris Ramsey Appointed QPR Head Coach

Tue 19th May 2015 | Football Club Management

Chris Ramsey has been appointed Head Coach at QPR.

Ramsey has signed a three year contract at Loftus Road until the summer of 2018.

Chairman Tony Fernandes believes the 53 year-old – who took over the position on a temporary basis following Harry Redknapp’s resignation in February – is the right man to lead Rangers into the future, commenting:

“When Chris took over the role we were already in a very difficult position, yet despite our relegation, we – as a board – have been impressed with the professionalism and attention to detail he has demonstrated since becoming Head Coach.

“He lives and breathes management and coaching, and I am sure he will flourish in this role, as we look to bounce back from this season’s disappointments.

“This is a new start for us and one I am confident Chris will relish playing a major part in.”

Director of Football, Les Ferdinand, added: “From the board, to the players, to the staff, Chris has impressed everyone here in his short time in charge.

“His coaching methods and techniques are second to none and with an opportunity to work with his own squad going forward, he is the ideal candidate for the role in terms of our new philosophy of nurturing young talent and promoting from within.

“Rebuilding the club is our first target. If we can make an immediate return to the Premier League, then great, but we have to focus on re-establishing the traditions of QPR. That will take time, but in Chris we have a man who is relishing the challenge that lies ahead.”

Speaking exclusively to www.qpr.co.uk, Ramsey expressed his delight at being handed the role on a permanent basis, commenting: “This is a fantastic opportunity for me and one I am tremendously excited about.

“I enjoyed my time in temporary charge, despite the way the season panned out, and now I’m looking forward to the challenge of helping rebuild this club over the coming years.

“I am fully aware of what this club means to its supporters and I intend to do everything possible to help build a QPR team they can be proud of.”

A further announcement regarding Ramsey’s backroom team will be made in due course.
