Fernandes to give Warnock 'what he wants' at QPR
Wednesday 17 August 2011
The prospective Queen's Park Rangers owner Tony Fernandes has pledged to support manager Neil Warnock.
The Malaysian businessman, who owns Air Asia and Formula One's Team Lotus, is expected to complete his takeover of the recently-promoted Premier League club sometime this week.
Warnock's future has regularly been the subject debate since taking the helm at Loftus Road, but Fernandes insisted his position will be safe should he take over. "I think Neil is a super guy and he's done extremely well to have got QPR to where they are," he said. "He'd have my full support. I think the manager should get what the manager wants."
Rangers were handed a harsh introduction to top-flight life on Saturday, losing 4-0 at Loftus Road to Bolton.
