Briatore ordered QPR substitution from Malaysia

It's been revealed that QPR co-owner Flavio Briatore ordered a substitution all the way from Malaysia last season!

The Telegraph says watching the April 4 derby against Crystal Palace 6,500 miles away at the Malaysian Grand Prix in Kuala Lumpur, Briatore was unimpressed.

Sources close to the west London club have confirmed that the disgraced former Renault team principal, unimpressed by the footage he had seen of Liam Miller's first-half performance, contacted Paulo Sousa, the then team manager, to demand that the 28 year-old be replaced by Lee Cook!
