QPR boss Neil Warnock cannot believe the club is serious about getting rid of him.
World Cup winner Marcello Lippi and former Chelsea boss Claudio Ranieri are believed to have been considered by the Rangers board, with Bernie Ecclestone, Flavio Briatore and Amit Bhatia weighing up whether to appoint a big-name manager.
But having saved QPR from relegation in the final two months of last season before taking them to the Premier League, Warnock insists he deserves a chance to prove himself again in the top flight.
"It would be their loss if I left," Warnock told the London Evening Standard. "I don't see where they can go to get anyone better. The people being mentioned aren't any better, so I don't see why they would want to get rid of me.
"It won't be an issue with myself. I haven't sought any reassurances over my position - I don't see why I should. You can only work as hard as you can and it has been a great season all round. People ask me what will happen in the next two years but I don't know what will happen in the next two days, two weeks or two months."
