Tony Fernandes: Chairman insists Mark Hughes is still the man to turn around QPR's fortunes
QPR chairman Tony Fernandes has again thrown his support behind manager Mark Hughes, insisting "the cream will rise to the top".
Winless Rangers lie bottom of the Premier League having picked up just three points from nine matches, despite a heavy outlay on new players over the summer.
But Fernandes has steadfastly stood by the Welshman and delivered further public backing on QPR's London Call-In show on Thursday night.
"You can't blame Mark for the position we're in but we're a vastly more consistent team than we were," said Fernandes.
"Cream eventually rises to the top. I'm fully behind Mark, as are the shareholders. We haven't had luck but we have enough quality in the squad."
"The team has got the makings of a great team and Mark can get the best out of them.
"I'm an old fashioned guy that believes in stability and changing things is going to achieve nothing.
"Cream eventually rises to the top. I'm fully behind Mark, as are the shareholders. We haven't had luck but we have enough quality in the squad.
"We've got tremendous quality at the club. I went down to the training ground (on Tuesday) and the players' spirit was exciting for me, there was real camaraderie there.
"I don't regret any of the signings I've made. If you had read interviews I gave at the start of the season I said it was going to be tough because they (the new players) needed to gel."
