Paladini takes hot seat at QPR
Friday 30 September 2005
The Monaco-based consortiums Wanlock LLC and Barnaby Holdings, both of which have a substantial stake in QPR, had recommended the installation of Paladini as chairman. "Supporters will have been a little bewildered by recent events," Paladini told the club's official website, "but now I believe we have the right people in place to take the club forward."
Reports last week claimed that QPR faced a Football Association investigation into the sums they had spent on agents' fees, reports Paladini has strenuously denied.
Leicester and QPR have been charged by the Football Association with failing to control their players' behaviour after incidents in their match last weekend. Each side had a player sent off during the 2-1 win for QPR at the Walkers Stadium on Saturday, with both teams charged for a "mass confrontation".
The Millwall midfielder Jody Morris has received a further one-match ban for using abusive language towards referee Andy D'Urso following his sending off against Cardiff on Saturday. Morris, 26, has also been fined £2,000 for the incident.
The former Chelsea player was dismissed for a second booking and, after reacting angrily to the decision, was charged with using abusive and/or insulting words towards a match official by the FA.
