The new QPR manager Harry Redknapp has said that the performance of the QPR players this season has been nothing short of embarrassing. The former Tottenham manager was recently appointed as the replacement for Mark Hughes, who was sacked on Friday. This was following a poor run of results that has left the club bottom of the Premier league table. They are also winless in the 12 matches they have played so far. Mark Hughes said after surviving in the Premier league last season that he would not leave the club in a similar situation – fighting against relegation.
However, despite spending a lot of money bringing in several high profile players like José Bosingwa and Granero, the club find themselves in an even worse position. After taking over the reins from the former Blackburn manager, Redknapp blasted the players by saying that they should have been performing a lot better on the pitch. He has said that the fact that they had taken just four points from the 13 matches is extremely embarrassing. Redknapp was in the stands for the recent defeat of QPR – against Manchester United during the weekend. The away trip to Sunderland in the midweek action gives Redknapp the opportunity to get the first win of the season for QPR.
“Anyone should be higher than four points. It’s an embarrassing total for the players to have. They have got to do better. It is no good us all kidding ourselves, saying they have all done great and fantastic. You can’t be doing great if you have only four points, can you? That’s impossible. It is not tough to work it out. How can you have four points from 13 games? Something has got to be wrong,” said Redknapp ahead of the match with Sunderland on Tuesday night.
