Having guided Queens Park Rangers to their first points away from home this season caretaker manager Chris Ramsey has spoken of his desire to take the job on a full time basis, Sky
Until the resignation of former boss Harry Redknapp the R’s had seen an abysmal and unwanted record set by losing every single away game so far this season before their win over Sunderland on Tuesday.
Two first half goals were enough to secure the victory and have lifted the club out of the relegation places – if only on goal difference for the meantime.
Ramsey also oversaw a good performance that ultimately went unrewarded last weekend thanks to Southampton’s 90th minute winner but there are encouraging signs for the relegation threatened side, despite the change in manager.
And the caretaker boss has done no harm to his credentials after ending their wretched away form – and stated after the game he wants the job permanently.
He said: “If the job’s available and I’m the right man for the job then I’ll do it.
“If not, I’ll stay as an employee – head of player development – for the club and continue to support the cause.”
Owner Tony Fernandes tweeted after the game that he had found what he described as his “dream manager” and when this was put to Ramsey, he refused to rule anything out.
Ramsey is not without his experience as a coach, having managed England’s U20 side in the past and guiding them to the 1999 FIFA World Youth Championship, and spending ten years as Tottenham Hotspur’s Head of Player Development.
