Bhatia Hails Fernandes Arrival

Bhatia Hails Fernandes Arrival

AMIT Bhatia spoke of his delight returning to Queens Park Rangers and hopes to 'restore pride' in the club

The QPR vice-chairman resigned after a disagreement in direction with then major shareholders Flavio Briatore and Bernie Ecclestone, but today returns following the takeover of Tony Fernandes.

The ill-feeling and animosity regarding his departure and the dismissal of Ishan Saksena raised questions about the direction of the club - confirmed by the disappointing and sizeable increase in ticket prices.

Bhatia has promised that he will help breathe life back into Queens Park Rangers. Speaking to QPR.co.uk he stated:

'I'm very excited to welcome Tony to QPR and having spent considerable time with him, know that we share the same vision and values.

'We have discussed in great detail how to restore pride at the Club and I'm very pleased with the outcome of these discussions.

'It was a very difficult decision to resign from the board when I did, so I'm thrilled to be back and would like to thank all those who supported me and my family and look forward to serving the Club to the best of my abilities again.

'Tony and I will work alongside each other to try and make this season as exciting and successful as possible. I love this Club and this is a very happy day for me.'


With Bhatia returning and Fernandes promising to invest in players, it seems that the previous prosperity at Rangers has returned and supporters hope that this can be reflected against Everton this weekend.
