"If QPR were to reach the goals which the directors have set, the idea of a more spacious and comfortable stadium would be guaranteed. I hope we will be playing in the Champions League in four years' time, and I hope I will still be here to experience it first-hand."
In the interview with the Daily Mail, De Canio covered a lot of key areas such as the transfer policy:
"We will certainly make signings in the summer, but it will be done carefully, which was what happened during the January transfer window.
"But that doesn't take away the fact that, if we move up a division, Briatore and his associates are prepared to make investments of a certain consistency, including for players who play abroad."
"The owners of QPR are very, very rich, but they took over the club with the idea of making steady progress, not of throwing money out of the window."
Despite being placed on the periphery of a play-off chase De Canio is happy to consolidate Rangers position in the Championship:
"This season, we are happy to avoid relegation, as we were in a poor position when I took over in October. We will think about promotion next season, because at the moment there are a number of strong teams who have many more points than we do."
In what was an interesting discussion De Canio went on to talk about the nature of the game in England and his homeland, Italy:
"There is a genuine passion for football in England, but without the levels of exasperation that exist in Italy, where too often the only thing that counts is winning.
"The referees here are calmer, and they speak to the players more. Of course, they make mistakes, yet they are not criticised as heavily as they are in Italy.
"The managers here are good, but in training they concern themselves less with tactics than Italians would. In Italy, the managers are given more of a rounded preparation for the job, which includes knowledge of psychology and tactics."
