Mark Hughes shocker: Tony Fernandes wants QPR to emulate the mighty Fulham
MARK Hughes, the former Manchester United striker, left Fulham FC in June 2011. He later returned to football management with QPR in January 2012. Said he:
“I simply felt my ambition for where I wanted to take the club was not being matched. Historically, Fulham were a club who were happy to be in the Premier League and that was their ambition. But it was not my ambition for them…Fulham were probably a bit too honest with me. They were saying, “We know exactly what you’re about, Mark, but really we are just quite happy to stay in the Premier League”.’
Says Tony Fernandes, QPR owner, whose side are now18th in the Premier League and in the relegation zone (Fulham are 1oth):
“I look at Fulham, I look at Everton. Those are the models for this club.”
Shall we get your coat, Sparky..?
