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

'Football Not For Me' - Briatore

FLAVIO Briatore has stated that while football wasn't the game for him - he did the job he set out to do at Queens Park Rangers

Speaking to Gazetta dello Sport the former co-owner stated he delivered on his primary promise of taking QPR back to the Premier League.

He stated: 'With QPR I did what I promised, but football is not for me'

'When we arrived, QPR were bottom and we promised to bring the club up to the Premier League in three years. We did it. No regrets, I did my job.'

He then went on to tell the news outlet an interest set of statements regarding football players and management at large, indicating as to why he didn't find a great fondness for the game.

'They (managers) fall in love for a player and after two months they dump him'.

'They (players) are spoiled! A 'panchinaro' (italian term for the player always on the bench) gains more than a company executive. And when a player gets fined, he doesn't pay.

'If a player misses, there is always an excuse. Everything is due to them. Private airplanes and all luxuries. It can't continue this way'.

When questioned regarding the ethos of paying drivers in Formula One, Briatore stated:

'Only three drivers makes the difference. The others drivers earn what they deserve. And don't forget that behind them there's the work of 800 persons. They have a lot of responsability'.

Briatore sold his stake along with Bernie Ecclestone on Thursday to Malaysian businessman Tony Fernandes, who has become the majority shareholder.

With thanks as always to QPR Italia
