QPR confirm departure of Eustace

John Eustace has left his position as QPR assistant manager.

The 42-year-old is expected to link up with recently departed QPR boss Mark Warburton, who is expected to be appointed as the manager of Birmingham City.

Eustace joined the club as assistant manager under Steve McClaren in 2018 and continued in the role under Warburton.

He took temporary charge of the first team when McClaren left in April 2019.

Assistant coach Matt Gardiner has also left the club as new head coach Michael Beale prepares to bring in his own backroom staff.
