The QPR defender Ryan Nelsen has said that he is extremely confident that the new manager Harry Redknapp will be able to bring back the confidence within the players starting with the match against Sunderland in the midweek action.

QPR began the new season with Mark Hughes, who was given a lot of money to spend in the summer. However, the team is yet searching for the first win of the season and they lie bottom of the table. As a result, the owner Tony Fernandes decided to change the manager in the hope of keeping the club afloat in the division.

Mark Hughes was given the sack just a day before the Manchester United match and the former Tottenham and Portsmouth manager Harry Redknapp was appointed in his place. Harry Redknapp was not in the touchline for the 3-1 defeat against Manchester United on Saturday. He will be taking charge of his first game against Sunderland in midweek. Ahead of this match, Ryan Nelsen is confident that the new manager will provide them with a lot of confidence necessary to get out of that relegation zone. Nelson has also admitted that it has been a horrible start to the new season, and the players never expected to be in this situation.

“I know Harry and that him and his staff will be doing their utmost to get us points. Obviously, he hasn’t had much time. He is still getting to know every player.He has to cast his own eye on everyone and that won’t happen overnight. He is just trying to keep everyone positive.None of us has been in this position before. It’s horrible but Harry will bring in his own ideas, bring in some confidence. We just have to start producing on the field and get some points,” said Ryan Nelsen.
