‘I think I am the man for the job,’ claims Ramsey despite QPR’s relegation to the Championship

first_imgQPR manager Chris Ramsey believes he is still the best man for the job despite overseeing his side’s second relegation in three years after a dismal 6-0 defeat at Manchester City.A Sergio Aguero hat-trick and further strikes from Aleksandar Kolarov, James Milner and David Silva condemned the Hoops to an embarrassing loss which saw them join Burnley in next season’s Championship.Ramsey has mustered just one win from 11 games since taking charge in February, but the interim manager is confident he can steer the club back into the top flight at the first time of asking.“I think I am the man for the job and I am sure this club will be back where it should be,” said the 53-year-old.“I am a fighter myself, I’ve now got an opportunity to save their status. We were on the slide before I took the job. It’s a great club and they deserve to be in the Premier League.”Ramsey did not attempt to defend his players after their abysmal showing at the Etihad which seemed more a formality of when, rather than if, they would relegated.He said: “Today was disappointing, the way we performed in front of a big TV audience and big crowd here.“I didn’t think it was good enough at all. It’s not been what we’ve become used to in the last few weeks.”The Hoops boss cited a necessary overhaul to help revitalise the club with a lot of players nearing the end of their contracts and many more looking disinterested and disenchanted.“It’s well documented that a lot of the squad are coming to the end of their contracts. There are some good lads there,” Ramsey added.“But you don’t end up at the bottom of the league just in one game, it’s something that has been happening all season.”last_img
