QPR Chairman Tony Fernandes has revealed that the QPR board had no doubts over making a move for Harry Redknapp after Mark Hughes was sacked.
He told the club website:
Harry was our number one target, the unanimous choice of the board and we’re delighted we’ve been able to attract him to the club.
He has a proven track record in the Premier League and has all the characteristics we were looking for to get us out of the current situation we find ourselves in.
His man-management skills are second to none and we are confident he is the right man to lead us away from the bottom of the table.
We believe we have a manager with significant experience at the highest level of football, who can come in and immediately help deliver our objectives.
