R's approach for Guidolin

16 October 2007 11:31
QPR have approached well-travelled Italian coach Francesco Guidolin to become the new manager at Loftus Road. The 52-year-old has held talks with new R's owner and fellow countryman Flavio Briatore over replacing the sacked John Gregory at the Championship strugglers. Guidolin has coached several Serie A clubs including Palermo, Genoa, Bologna and Udinese. He has been out of work since leaving Palermo - for the second time in his career - at the end of last season. "It's true, I've met Briatore," revealed Guidolin. "But there is nothing definitive. "I admit that I would be pleased to have a professional adventure in England."
