Former Huddersfield Town manager makes a shocking admission that catch the attention of QPR…

Neil Warnock has recently expressed his willingness to return to football management after Christmas.

The former Huddersfield Town manager, who left the Terriers in September despite securing Championship survival, is open to taking on a managerial role in mid-table, preferably aiming for a playoff position rather than focusing on relegation battles.

Warnock, 74, mentioned in an interview with Sky Sports that he typically starts working in February and would consider a managerial position if it becomes available after Christmas. He emphasized his preference for a club in a mid-table position, steering away from teams at the bottom of the league.

Despite the speculation about whether Huddersfield would be Warnock’s final managerial stint, it appears he is eager to make a return in the coming year. His departure from Huddersfield came as a surprise, with Darren Moore replacing him.

Considering Warnock’s extensive experience, it is suggested that his next job might involve another survival mission rather than a playoff push. While a return to Huddersfield seems unlikely, potential destinations could include Rotherham United, Queens Park Rangers (QPR), and Sheffield Wednesday.

Rotherham United is currently searching for a new manager following the recent dismissal of Matt Taylor. Warnock has previously managed at the New York Stadium, leading the Millers to Championship safety in 2016. Although he expressed a desire to take a break until the New Year, circumstances might change if Rotherham’s managerial appointment does not yield positive results.

QPR recently appointed Marti Cifuentes as their new head coach, and despite his decent start, Warnock, a former Championship title-winning manager with QPR in 2011, could be considered if the team continues to struggle. Sheffield Wednesday, with their recent managerial change to Danny Rohl, may also turn to Warnock if their fortunes do not improve.

Warnock’s track record of survival makes him an attractive prospect for clubs facing challenging situations. While Cifuentes and Rohl are still relatively new to their roles and need time to make an impact, the possibility of Warnock returning to management in the early stages of next year remains open.
