QPRs Fernandes says Hughes still has his support

QPR chairman Tony Fernandes insists under-pressure manager Mark Hughes doesn't need to fear the sack even though his team are rooted to the bottom of the Premier League.

Fernandes backed Hughes with significant funds to improve the squad during the recent transfer window but, despite signing the likes of former Manchester United star Park Ji-sung and ex-Inter Milan goalkeeper Julio Cesar, QPR have endured a miserable start to the season.

The west London club have only two points from their opening seven games after crashing to a 3-2 defeat at West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.

But Malaysian tycoon Fernandes remains fully committed to supporting Hughes, who is convinced QPR's fortunes will improve once his revamped squad has had time to bed in.

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."
