Fernandes pledges future to QPR

Tony Fernandes will not walk away from QPR if he is unable to fix things at the West London club.

The Air Asia chief recently said he may have to end his tenure with the R's if he was unsuccessful in getting things back on track but he has since pledged his commitment to the club he owns 66% of.

"In any business there will be hiccups but this is not a one-year or two-year project. This a lifelong commitment," Fernandes wrote in a statement on the club's official website.

"We fight and fight. I am not despondent at all. QPR has come a long, long way from where we were and the plan continues."

He added, regarding the 3-2 loss to Aston Villa on Saturday: "We should have won at the weekend and made it easier for ourselves but we didn't. So what!

"There are still eight games to go. We beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge and showed against Southampton that we are capable of putting wins together and we have scored seven goals in our last three fixtures, so anything can happen.

"Forget Aston Villa. Focus on the future. The path in front of us is exciting."
