Former Manchester United and Chelsea goalkeeper Mark Bosnich is already working towards a playing return to Loftus Road and he could be joined by his former Australia coach - Terry Venables.

. The People says England's No.2 has made Loftus Road bigwigs aware that he would be interested in a sensational return to the club he led in the early 80s.

Venables has put his name into the melting pot along with a staggering 192 other applicants - including another former England boss, Glenn Hoddle.

And new QPR owners Flavio Briatore and Bernie Ecclestone, with chairman Gianni Paladini, must now decide whether the former club captain, shareholder and managing director is the man for the job.
