QPR defender says that the team is behind Mark Hughes

QPR defender Clint Hill has said that all the players are behind under-pressure manager Mark Hughes and he is confident that results will soon turn around.

Queens Park Rangers are currently at the bottom of the table having accumulated just two points from their seven matches this season. QPR have lost five of their six matches in all competition and the pressure is starting to build on manager Mark Hughes. The former Manchester City manager nearly brought a whole new team during the summer transfer window, following which the expectations surrounding the club have increased a lot. Fans certainly didn’t expect this QPR team to be fighting relegation battle in the league.

Recently there has been a lot of speculation surrounding Mark Hughes’ future at the club. But QPR defender Clint Hill, one of the few players retained from last season, has revealed that Mark Hughes has the full backing of the squad.

‘Everybody on the inside is pulling in the same direction and trying to get the result we need,’ he told the Fulham Chronicle.

‘The gaffer’s confident he can turn things around – he wouldn’t be here if he wasn’t. He’s still got the full support of all the boys. We’re fully behind him and the staff.’

The defender also pointed things can turn around in football and cited the example of Andre Villas-Boas and Tottenham Hotspur.

‘If you have three or four bad results, people from outside the club start writing things and pointing fingers,’ he said.

‘If you look at the Tottenham manager three or four weeks ago, everyone was saying he was a bad manager. All of a sudden he gets a few results and nothing is said.’

Recently Chairman Tony Fernandes has also given his full backing to Mark Hughes. QPR’s next match in the league is against Everton and then they travel to the Emirates stadium to face Arsenal. It will be a tough couple of matches for Mark Hughes’ men, but if they manage to get a win in any of these two games, it will certainly boost their confidence.
