QPR co-owner Flavio Briatore has cast doubt over Neil Warnock's long-term future in the Loftus Road hot-seat after describing Marcello Lippi as his 'dream' coach.
Warnock has guided Rangers to the top of the Championship table in the opening months of the season.
However, Briatore's admission casts doubt over his ability to retain the job should the London club win promotion to the Premier League.
"Bernie Ecclestone and I have a 70 per cent stake in QPR and we are top of the table," the former Formula One team boss told an Italian magazine.
"If we go into the Premier League, I have a dream.
"That is to have Marcello Lippi as our coach."
World Cup winning coach Lippi is currently out of work following his second spell in charge of the Italian national team.
