QPR go for Zidane
By Paul Dunne

WORLD Cup legend Zinedine Zidane is the sensational name in the frame to take over as boss of QPR.

Rangers owner Flavio Briatore has promised a major announcement before today's final match of the season at home to

West Brom - and informed whispers insist he'll name Zidane as Loftus Road boss.

The French superstar has no coaching experience but he has what Italian playboy Briatore covets most of all - 24- carat glamour. At a stroke his arrival would catapult Rangers into the big time.

Rangers skipper Gareth Ainsworth added to the intrigue wh e n , i n a t a n t a l i s i n g contribution to the club's website, he urged fans to arrive early today for 'the dawn of a new era.'

"Sunday promises to be a day every QPR fan, old and young, remembers for the rest of their lives," he wrote.

Netting Zidane would be the managerial coup of all time but even legends like the French World Cup winner can have their heads turned by cash - and Briatore, alongside co-owners Lakshmi Mittal and Bernie Ecclestone, have oodles of it.

Briatore wants Premier League football and a boss of Zidane's stature, rather than current chief Luigi De Canio, would attract the players to realise that dream.
