Crystal Palace chairman Simon Jordan has slammed the big-name appointment of Paulo Sousa as new QPR manager.
Sousa has been assistant to Portugal coach Carlos Queiroz. It is the first time the 38-year-old will take charge of a team and Jordan believes it is significant that the Portuguese has the title of first team coach.
He said: "I think it's brilliant that a guy who knows nothing about the Championship has been appointed. The terminology is important. Isn't Briatore the manager?
"I was more concerned when Rangers appointed Iain Dowie because although I don't have a lot of regard for him, he knows the Championship.
"Paulo Sousa knows next to nothing about the Championship which is a very specific league. You need a special knowledge of it to get out of it and you can't buy this.
