Queens Park Rangers have appointed former England manager Glenn Hoddle as first team coach, reports Sky Sports.

Glenn Hoddle

Hoddle has been out of senior football since resigning from his position as manager of Wolverhampton Wanderers in the summer of 2006, but Hoops boss Harry Redknapp was delighted to have secured his services.

“I am really pleased to bring Glenn in," said Redknapp. “I spoke with the chairman about the possibility of bringing Glenn in, and he thought it was a great idea. Glenn will be great. He has a brilliant knowledge of the game and will be fantastic out on the training ground with the players.”

During his playing career Hoddle was known as being technically gifted, and he brought this technical approach to his subsequent coaching and management career.

To date he has managed Swindon Town, Chelsea, Southampton, Tottenham, and Wolves, as well as leading the England national team to the quarter finals of the 1998 World Cup.

Expressing his enjoyment of working with players, Hoddle said: “I have always loved coaching, and I can’t wait to meet the players, get on the training pitch and get to work.”

Underlining his love of developing players, after leaving Wolves he created the Glenn Hoddle Academy, a programme aimed at helping young players who had been released from professional clubs to get back into the game.

But after eight years away he is happy to be back involved at the top level of the English game. “I am really pleased to take up Harry’s offer,” he said. “After winning promotion last season, the first aim at QPR is to stay in the Premier League and I am looking forward to helping play my part as we try to achieve that.”

Hoddle joins Kevin Bond and Joe Jordan in Redknapp’s backroom staff.
