When QPR owner Tony Fernandes backed Neil Warnock

by | 10th, January 2012

NEIL Warnock, the likeable football manager, has been sacked by QPR with the team just above the relegation zone.

On August 11, Tony Fernandes , the club’s owner, told the QPR faithful:

“There’s a deep love for Neil [Warnock] here, it’s very apparent. They just want a chairman who will give the manager support…I love his passion…He’s just black and white. You don’t see any hidden agenda and what you see is what you get. He’s coming to the end of his career and this is a chance to really build something. I hope he’ll stay here for a long, long time.”

On January 8, Tony Fernandes panicked. Warnock gets sacked.

The media says Mark Hughes is the new boss. And Fernandes will back him big:

“QPR are on the brink of making Mark Hughes their new boss – and they are set to hand him an £8m transfer kitty to steer Rangers to safety” – The Daily Star
