LES Ferdinand has set his sights on managing QPR.
The Rangers hero, affectionately known as Sir Les, has revealed for the first time he wants to return to his old club as number one - but admits he may have to serve his apprenticeship elsewhere before returning to his beloved Loftus Road.
The 43-year-old former England striker from Paddington has also spent a frustrating 14 years-plus since he became Rs’ record transfer sale, praying they would return to the Premiership.
Ferdinand is currently coaching the strikers at Tottenham - but has set his sights higher.
He said: "QPR would be the first club on my list where I would like to become manager. I might have to wait maybe four or five years - or whatever it takes, but it would be a dream job for me.
“From the moment they went down, all I ever wanted was to see them back in the Premier League.
“I know at some stage I will go into management, but at the moment being the strikers’ coach at Tottenham is a great learning curve."
