'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Happy Birthday Flavio Briatore

Saturday 12 April will see Queens Park Rangers co-owner Flavio Briatore celebrate his birthday by watching Rangers take on Championship promotion hopefuls Hull City.

Only yesterday Flavio, (58) made the sporting headlines (again) stating he wanted to turn QPR into a worldwide brand.

'QPR is a very nice story,' said Flavio. "You start from the bottom and reorganise the club. It's much more sexy to take a Championship club up."

BBC sports interactive also quoted the Italian multi-millionaire as saying...

"Every time I go to Formula One, people in the paddock say 'well done', its great."

"In Italy people are talking about it. Every Sunday and Monday in the Gazzette Dello Sport is the result of QPR, in Spain Marca is talking about QPR, in Europe people are talking about QPR, in England everybody is talking about QPR. The name is great."


Flavio finished off by adding...

"People stop me in the street people and say 'thank you for saving QPR, thank you for saving my club', I believe if you do something like this it is nice."

Vital QPR wishes Flavio many happy returns.

Hope Flavio and Mittal take you guys to our level in the Premiership.. We need someone to replace the Liverpool jokers.. i think QPR is set to achieve greater things.. All the best.. I have a small feeling for QPR beacuse I worked in one of Mittal's firms :-)
