Sousa Sacked by QPR


Official Statement from the Official QPR Website;

Queens Park Rangers Football Club has today (Thursday) had to terminate Paulo De Sousa's employment with the Club with immediate effect.

It came to the Club's attention that Mr De Sousa had, without authority, divulged highly confidential and sensitive information. The Club, with legal advice, responded in this way to protect its position.

Player / Coach Gareth Ainsworth will take Caretaker charge on a temporary basis, from now until the end of the season.



After just 26 matches in charge, Sousa by all accounts had annoyed the QPR board for telling members of the press after the Palace match that he had no knowledge of the deal to take Dexter Blackstock to Nottingham Forest until after it had been agreed.

It is also believed that the sacking relates to a post on the on a message board earlier this week - from a supporter who spoke to Sousa after the Crystal Palace match on Saturday with regards to a number of details about the fitness or otherwise of first team squad members and criticised the ability of others. This post was not removed by the site and its content got back to the club, that ultimately has led to Paulo Sousa being fired.

I cannot believe that once again, I am sitting here writing about the sacking of yet another, QPR Manager. I am gobmacked!! With the Season Ticket Early Bird deadline looming, we are now going to be buying, if at all, with no idea who the new boss will be for next season, or the first 10 games of the season?? In truth, who on earth is going to want this job???

Flavio Briatore - CONGRATULATIONS!!! - you have successfully turned our QPR into a complete and utter joke!!!

Paulo Sousa has told Sky Sports News that he completely denies all allegations against him.

With not much more to say politely on the subject, I would like to wish Paulo Sousa all the best for the future... and for the second time this season, wish Gareth Ainsworth all the luck in the world for what you have taken on!! Your going to need it, my friend!!

    Are we supposed to laugh or cry? Assuming the board did want a change why, why, WHY, could they not wait one month? You are absolutely right, only a madman would even consider taking the job now.

    Once more unto the breach Gaz!

    What a joke this is. Qblock Pete made a website out of what Gianni (allegedly) tells him in regards to the players and yet he is still our director of football in charge. This sacking is purely because Paulo Sousa dared to stand up to the divine Briatore.

    Flavio you helped this club to keep going when you, bernie and the Mittals came in, but this is not your club, it is not your plaything, and it is not something to boost your ego. This is QPR, This is the Supporters club and you need to remember that, if you wnat your "project" to succeed.
