Hughes confident QPR can attract quality players

QPR boss Mark Hughes is confident of attracting quality players to Loftus Road.

Admitting to the difficulties of persuading quality players to come to a club currently languishing in the bottom three, Hughes is hopeful the combination of his managerial reputation and owner Tony Fernandes' cash can still make QPR an attractive proposition.

"It would be easier if we were a mid-table club, looking upwards rather than downwards," conceded Hughes. "But once the club have the opportunity to sit down in front of players and representatives and we can talk to them, I think they will understand very quickly what we are trying to do.

"Our league position obviously tempers their enthusiasm because there is always that worry they might be coming into a situation they don't want to happen, as we all do.

"But I made that decision and I was comfortable with it. Once the players hear the same story I heard they will be comfortable with it as well. You have to attract players with a financial package as well as what we can offer on the field of play. They go hand in hand."
