Fernandes eager to avoid same mistakes

Last Updated: Mon, 21 Jul 2014 15:13

QPR chief Tony Fernandes insists he is striving for stability at the club and won't be signing players who are looking for a pay day.

The R's suffered relegation from the Premier League in the 2012-13 campaign with a number of high-earners on their books, something which Fernandes is keen to avoid this time round.

The chairman believes that it is crucial the club learns from its mistakes in the past and they look to establish themselves as a fixture in the Premier League.

The 50-year-old has issued boss Harry Redknapp with a strict budget for his summer spending and admitted that they will be prepared to look in the lower divisions for some diamonds in the rough.

Fernandes said: "There is a playing budget. There is a plan - there is a number. It is a finite budget.

"We want any thought from any agent that they can get more money out of QPR to disappear completely. I want to break even, lose a little bit or make some money.

"There is a balance. I think we went for a lot of players from big clubs two years ago."
