QPR Owner Rules Out Big January Signings

Loftus Road side will have to make do with squad they currently possess.

Check-In to Stoke City v QPR

QPR owner Tony Fernandes has ruled out further big signings in January despite the club still struggling to produce their first Premier League win of the season.

He told Sky Sports: “I think we’ve got a good enough squad. We’ve made a lot of changes and brought in a lot of players over the last three transfer windows.

“We may trade a little bit like other clubs but just like the manager needs stability, so the players need stability. They need to play with eachother and get to know eachother better.

“There may be one or two (signings) but it will be like a traditional club – a little bit of business rather than a massive amount of business like we’ve done in the past.

“We were a rebuilding club but I think we’ve done that now. I’ve done whatever I can to put QPR in the right place and it’s now down to the manager and the players to perform. I’m sure they will.”

Can’t blame Mr Fernandes. The squad that QPR currently have, and it’s a big one, should not be at the foot of the table. The quality of players in Mark Hughes’s first team picture, and the strength in depth in most positions, should really see the West London side bobbing up and down around mid-table.

Perhaps then this calls into question Mark Hughes’s ability as a manager? Or maybe it was always going to take a while for all the club’s major signings to gel. Either way the Welshman’s job must surely hang in the balance.

QPR have moved backwards since they axed Neil Warnock and if come January the Loftus Road side are still in the relegation zone then Hughes may be on his way.
