Ex-QPR chairman Paladini: I've always been Birmingham fan

Former QPR chairman Gianni Paladini says his bid for Birmingham City is about passion.

Paladini has now set his sights on taking charge at Birmingham.

"I'm a Birmingham boy myself," Paladini said. "I've always liked Blues and I've got a good relationship with a lot of Zulu Warriors [City's hooligan element], if they're still there I don't know, because I've been at QPR for 11 years.

"I've been a long-serving chairman of QPR. I think we did a great job, sometimes you have to do things the hard way to get success but the most important thing is that I took QPR when they were in League One at the time and then we got promoted the way we did, spent a fortune and at the end the job was done. QPR are now in the Premier League."
