James Perch only needed four games to be won over by Neil Warnock at QPR.
Warnock takes Cardiff City to Loftus Road on Saturday, where the Yorkshireman spent two separate spells most recently as interim manager in November 2015.
And Perch has nothing but admiration for the experienced boss and is convinced R’s fans will welcome him with open arms at the weekend.
“I’m sure Neil will get a great reception because he was brilliant for us,” he said.
“All the lads really liked him .He’s old-school and I’m from an old-school area.
“Ollie, to me, is very similar and I can see similarities in the way they work.
“I’m not surprised he’s done very well at Cardiff.
“He deserves it, he’s a good manager and has got good people round him.”
As much as he enjoyed his short time under Warnock, Perch’s attention is now on pleasing Ian Holloway.
The former Newcastle man has never been worshipped by R’s fans and his only focus is on making sure Holloway is happy with him.
“I’m there to please the gaffer. He’s the one who makes the decisions,” Perch said.
“I might get a bit of stick. People might not like how I play, or whatever.
“My only focus is the gaffer, the staff and the players.
“If I can manage to please the fans, then that’s fair enough.”
