Karsa set to join QPR in key academy role

Gary Karsa is set to join QPR
Gary Karsa is poised to join QPR as head of academy recruitment.

Karsa lost his job as head of football operations at Aston Villa in May last year following a club investigation into allegations of bullying.

He worked at Leyton Orient and Barnet before joining Paul Lambert’s coaching team at Wycombe in 2006 along with ex-Norwich defender Ian Culverhouse.

The pair subsequently moved with Lambert to Colchester, Norwich and then Villa, who also dismissed Culverhouse following their investigation.

Karsa’s is one of a number of behind-the-scenes appointments QPR plan to make in the next few weeks.
