Sacking Neil Warnock
Whilst no one is claiming that Neil Warnock is a glamorous manager, he was effective at what he did, very experienced and was unfairly dismissed by QPR.
In another example of Fernandes’ uneducated intervention, Mark Hughes promptly replaced Neil Warnock as QPR manager.
Warnock was never really given the opportunity to keep QPR in the Premier League and Hughes only just managed it, despite being dire in the role.
The sacking of Warnock led to a merry-go-round of managers which only now looks to be ended by Hasselbaink’s appointment.
Mark Hughes was given too much power at QPR, appointing Mark Rigg as Director of Football who ripped apart the core of the club (from coaches to academy) and allowing his agent to bring in players for the sake of it, such as Jose Bosingwa.
This had a long-term detrimental effect on the club which they are still recovering from to this day.
