Mark Hughes in line for £1m bonus

QPR manager Mark Hughes will be given a £1 million bonus by owner Tony Fernandes if he can keep the club in the Premier League, according to The Daily Mail.

The Loftus Road club are still in a relegation dogfight going into the last day of the season, but have their fate in their own hands after beating Stoke 1-0 last time out.

With Bolton two points adrift of Rangers, Hughes men need a point against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium to ensure survival due to their superior goal difference.

With Hughes’ former club City needing to win to claim the Premier League title, it is sure to be an all-or-nothing clash for both sides, and Fernandes has issued the reward as a motivation to the Welsh boss.

Coaches Mark Bowen and Eddie Niedzwiecki are also believed to be in line for a handout if QPR stay up.
