Mark Hughes is the ‘right man’ for QPR, insists Tony Fernandes
QPR chairman Tony Fernandes once again insists that manager Mark Hughes is the "right man" to reverse club's fortunes
Tony Fernandes has once again leapt to the defence of Mark Hughes, insisting there is “no way” that the QPR manager will be sacked despite his side sitting bottom of the Premier League.
Hughes’ side are yet to pick up their first win of the season and suffered their third straight defeat at West Bromwich on Saturday, leaving the Hoops with just two points from their opening seven games.
The poor run of form has inevitably led to early speculation over Hughes’ position at the club he narrowly steered clear of relegation on the final day last season after taking over from Neil Warnock in January.
But QPR chairman Fernandes insists that Hughes is still the “right man” for the job and is backing the Welshman to reverse the west Londoners’ poor form.
Fernandes tweeted on Sunday: “For all QPR fans. Fans who analyse properly. I am not changing anything. And all shareholders agree. No team except the first game [a 5-0 home defeat to Swansea] has outplayed us.
“We need a consistent four defenders not changing every week especially right and left back. Mark is the right man.
“For all those calling for change, this is the team that outplayed Spurs and gave Chelsea a damm good game and you want change. No way.”
