Harry Redknapp seemed to have lost his energy and belief at QPR - Paul Scholes

There are not many old-school managers left now Harry Redknapp has quit Queen’s Park Rangers. He always struck me as a great motivator who gave players confidence.

The energy and belief that he usually had didn’t seem to be there this time. QPR’s obvious problem this season has been their away form of played 11, lost 11.

  At United we never used to change our style much away from home. The aim was always to score goals and dominate the match. Obviously, when a team is further down the table that is not always possible. In QPR’s situation I just don’t know why they haven’t tried harder to shut up shop and keep a clean sheet.

 

Perhaps the players just don’t know how to do it. When, for instance, QPR went to Old Trafford in September, United’s confidence was low. They had been through three Premier League games without a win and that defeat to MK Dons in the Capital One Cup.
