Tony Fernandes: Admits transfer policy at QPR may have been flawed

Tony Fernandes: Admits transfer policy at QPR may have been flawed

Fernandes estimates he has sunk £50m of his personal fortune into QPR club since he took over at Loftus Road in August 2011.

But the 49-year-old is determined not to make the same mistakes again, vowing to be careful with his dealings in the transfer market.

"I don't think I will be exploited any more," Fernandes said. "I think I allowed myself to be exploited but that's my choice.

"Agents are trying to get the best contracts and there's no two ways about it, I had to pay premiums.

"I've seen all of the parts that make football quite - maybe immoral is a strong word but they would sell their grandmother to do something.

"It's all part of the football ecosystem."

alcao really needs to shine now. Apparently according to the stats, he scores more when played up front alone. I wonder if Van Gaal will actually apply a formation to get the best out of him though.
