Hughes hits back as ex-Spurs, West Ham and Portsmouth boss’ spirit hangs over Loftus Road

QPR manager Mark Hughes believes no-one could do a better job than him at taking the club forward.

The Welshman took over at Loftus Road in January and managed to keep QPR in the Barclays Premier League and after keeping the west Londoners up last season invested heavily in his squad.

Results have not followed and the club sit bottom of the table with just two points and the likes of Harry Redknapp have been linked with the job.

When asked if he was worried by other managers being linked to his job, Hughes said: “Not at all, I know how well I work and I know what my staff do on a daily basis, I would put my ability up against anyone.

“I don’t think we are talking in those terms (of being sacked), I’m very positive about where we are.

“I understand the reasons why we are where we are, but the focus on us isn’t going to go away until we start winning games. We understand that, so we are where we are and we can’t change that until we start winning, so why worry about it?”
