Jim Magilton suspended by QPR


Recommended Posts

QPR have suspended manager Jim Magilton with immediate effect, pending an internal investigation.

The 40-year-old's suspension relates to an incident on Monday at Vicarage Road, where QPR lost 3-1 to Watford.

After the match, Magilton admitted he had a "difference of opinion" with midfielder Akos Buzsaky but he has categorically denied any wrong-doing.

QPR have won just one game in seven and the loss to Watford followed a 5-1 home defeat by Middlesbrough on Saturday.

Magilton issued a statement through the League Managers' Association on Wednesday afternoon, saying he would co-operate with any club investigation and hoped to be back in charge soon.

"While passions can run high in football, especially after a poor performance, I categorically deny any allegation of wrongdoing following Monday's fixture," he said.

"I understand that the club has initiated an internal investigation, with which I will co-operate fully.

"This is an unfortunate situation and I look forward to resuming my responsibilities shortly."

Following a statement about Magilton on Wednesday, the club issued a second statement later on their official website , denying reports that Buzsaky had handed in a transfer request.

"It is not true at all," the Hungarian international is quoted as saying.

"I am entirely focused on our next fixture against West Bromwich Albion on Monday night.
