Fernandes: QPR owners committed to the club

QPR chairman Tony Fernandes has promised that the club's owners are committed to staying at the Sky Bet Championship outfit for the long term despite announcing the biggest losses by any English club last season.

Relegation wasn't part of the plan and it has cost us financially and emotionally, but I and my fellow shareholder are fighters. We are committed and here for the long term.

Achieving promotion this season is not critical to our long-term strategy, but it remains our short-term goal.

If we fail in our bid for promotion, the support is there and there is no need for any more advances to build a squad.

We are now in a position where we can work with what we have, and raise capital to invest in the squad by selling players who are not part of the manager's plans.

– QPR chairman Tony Fernandes.
