QPR chairman Fernandes issues statement standing by Redknapp


Tony Fernandes is sticking with the guy who got him here.

The QPR chairman felt compelled to make a statement on the status of embattled manager Harry Redknapp, whose club has lost all 10 of its road matches this season and sits in 19th place in the Premier League.

With the bright side that it’s far from over and plenty cluttered from places 12-20, Fernandes made it all clear on Monday.

From QPR.co.uk:

“I firmly believe Harry is the best man to get us out of the position we currently find ourselves in.
“He has great experience and having spoken to him at length over the last week or so, he is determined to turn this around and help us maintain our Premier League status.
“This is Harry’s squad of players, so he is the man to move us forward.”
Fernandes went on to say they’ll strengthen the club during the January transfer window if they can, and asked the fans to keep backing Redknapp, though it’s hard to blame their doubts.
So it seems Redknapp will be going down or staying afloat with his ship of veteran players. We’ll see if he injects any youth into the ranks over the next few weeks.
