Mark Hughes given backing once more

QPR chairman Tony Fernandes has stated that Mark Hughes is the right man for the manager’s job at the club, despite the team’s slow start to the season.

The Loftus Road outfit have went through a major squad revamp over the summer, but have picked up only two points from their first seven games.

Despite a 3-2 defeat to West Brom at the weekend, the R’s chief will not wield the axe to the Welsh boss.

“For all QPR fans. Fans who analyse properly. I am not changing anything. And all shareholders agree,” Fernandes revealed on Twitter.

“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,” he concluded.

Meanwhile, summer signing Esteban Granero has stated that the players are to blame for the club’s poor form, not Hughes.

“We’re the ones who have to improve because the manager is great,” the Spaniard is quoted as saying in The Sun.

“We all support the manager. We know he’s the best manager we can possibly have. Most of the losses, for sure, are not his fault. It is our fault — the footballers’ fault,” he concluded.
