QPR head coach: Curtis Fleming

“It doesn’t matter what position QPR were in, I really enjoyed working with Ian Holloway. He’s a great guy, good people around the club like Boro and a lot of people have been there for a lot of years and have a real affinity with the club and it was a great place and a great working environment.

“But to get the chance to come back to this club, I had the chance a few years ago to do it and I didn’t do it out of loyalty because I promised to someone I would stay and I passed up on that chance.

“Ian Holloway sent me with his blessings, he’s good friends with Tony (Pulis) and I spoke to the chairman, too, who I know quite well and it just fit fantastically well for me. But the chance to come back to this club – you’ve got to grab it with two hands.”
