Wells saddened by McClaren sacking

QPR have sacked manager Steve McClaren

Nahki Wells has expressed his disappointment after the sacking of Queens Park Rangers manager Steve McClaren.

The former England manager was relieved of his duties yesterday after a run of one win in 15 Sky Bet Championship games.

McClaren’s sacking came just a month shy of his first anniversary since being appointed as QPR manager.

“Sad to see Steve McClaren leave,” tweeted Wells, who is on loan with QPR from Premier League side Burnley.

“He gave me the opportunity to join this club and for that I’m beyond grateful. He is a great person and manager that gave his very all. You will be truly missed.”

QPR have won just once in the league since December 26 and are seventeenth in the table, eight points above the relegation zone.

McClaren won 16 of his 46 games in charge and had been working under financial restrictions after the club’s £42 million settlement with the English Football League last summer for breaches of Financial Fair Play regulations during the 2013-14 season.

John Eustace, McClaren’s assistant, has been placed in charge while the West London club search for a new manager.
