Amazing Claim: "Briatore was tempted to appoint himself as Iain Dowie's successor..."

Daily Mail/Neil Ashton -Portugal legend Paulo Sousa set to become new QPR manager
Portugal legend Paulo Sousa will be appointed the new QPR manager after holding talks with Flavio Briatore in London on Tuesday night.
Briatore was tempted to appoint himself as Iain Dowie's successor at Loftus Road but has instead turned to the former Inter Milan and Juventus midfielder, who is currently assistant manager to Carlos Queiroz with the Portuguese national team.
It means Gareth Ainsworth, who has been coaching the team since Dowie's departure last month, will be moved aside after failing to convince Briatore.
Rangers were beaten narrowly at Manchester United in the Carling Cup last week but it was the home defeat to Burnley last Saturday that sealed his fate.
Sousa, 38, began his coaching career with Portugal Under 15s but stepped up to the first team when Luiz Felipe Scolari left for Chelsea in the summer. Mail
