Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp has told talkSPORT that it will take a ‘miracle’ for the club to survive the relegation battle currently on their hands.
The Super Hoops currently sit bottom of the Premier League without a win in their first 12 games of the season and, as a result, sacked Mark Hughes after 10 months in charge.
And, despite being close to becoming the new Ukraine boss, Redknapp has taken the hotseat at Loftus Road after a dramatic 24 hours in west London.
The 65-year-old knows the task that faces him is of mammoth proportions but he insists he’s prepared to give it his best shot.
“It’s a real challenge,” he told The Sports Bar. “You couldn’t take a tougher job on at the moment when you’ve got four points from 12 games – we need a miracle to pull it [survival] off but it’s worth a go.
“I love a challenge and I’m ready to have a go for it.
“It’s a passionate club with good support who get behind their team. We’ve got a hard job on our hands but I want to take it up and give it a go.
“Mark [Hughes] is a top manager. They bought a load of players in but at the moment it’s all bits and pieces. They just don’t seem to have gelled.
“They started the season getting bashed by Swansea 5-0. I’m sure Mark couldn’t put his finger on why it’s gone wrong but hopefully I can get a bit of luck and put my finger on it and get it sorted."
