Qpr fans be afraid as Bobby Zamora says ‘Alan Pardew is a character and he’s a good fit’

On Tuesday it was exactly a year since Alan Pardew was sacked from his last management job.

He lasted just a few days over four months at the Hawthorns and had West Brom at the bottom of the Premier League after a run of eight Premier League defeats on the bounce.

Steve McClaren was sacked at QPR on April Fools day after a run of one win in 15 Championship matches.

Now former QPR striker Bobby Zamora has suggested a likely replacement.

Zamora putting forward Alan Pardew for the role: ‘Possibly it might be Alan Pardew. He has been out of the game for a little while and no doubt he’s chomping at the bit.’

The one-time striker claiming Alan Pardew is ‘a character and he’s a good fit for the owners and club.’

Not sure exactly what that is based on, just ask West Ham, Charlton, Newcastle, Crystal Palace and West Brom fans.

Bobby Zamora, speaking exclusively to 888sport:

“I like Steve [McClaren].

“I think he’s an unbelievable coach.

“He has been working with what’s there and could possibly have done with a few more funds.

“Unfortunately, QPR have spent so much money in the past they’re now having to tighten the reins.

“It is very hard to do this job with young players and though there is some quality there I just think they needed more.

“Where they go from here, I don’t know because Steve is fantastic and I respect him massively.

“Possibly it might be Alan Pardew.

“He has been out of the game for a little while and no doubt he’s chomping at the bit.

“He is a character and he’s a good fit for the owners and club.

“So yes, he’s an option.”
