The QPR defender Clint Hill has said that the squad at the club are fully behind the manager Mark Hughes, despite results being extremely poor at the start of the new season. QPR are currently bottom of the Premier league table having taken just two points from the opening seven matches of the season.
This is extraordinary considering that QPR have spent a lot of money bringing in several high profile players on extremely large contracts. Despite not having the luxury of European football, QPR have been paying wages close to what the players are earning at a top four club.
Despite having several high quality players, the QPR manager Mark Hughes has been unable to get any results, while the poor form away from home continues to persist. The team recently lost the encounter with West Bromwich during the weekend. The 3-2 recent only increased the pressure on the manager, who has received the dreaded vote of confidence from the owner Tony Fernandes. The QPR owner stated on his Twitter account that he was fully behind the former Manchester City and Blackburn Rovers manager. The problems for QPR will only compound in the next few weeks because they will be facing inform teens like Everton and Arsenal.
“Everybody on the inside is pulling in the same direction and trying to get the result we need. The gaffer’s confident he can turn things around – he wouldn’t be here if he wasn’t. He’s still got the full support of all the boys. We’re fully behind him and the staff. If you have three or four bad results, people from outside the club start writing things and pointing finger,” said the defender after the West Brom match. QPR are yet to win a match away from home under Mark Hughes since his arrival more than a year ago.
