Stephane Mbia says QPR's players must accept responsibility for Mark Hughes' sacking.

Mbia pulls no punches when asked who is to blame for the turmoil that has left Queens Park Rangers at the bottom of the Premier League.

"Should the players feel guilty about Mark Hughes' sacking? Yes, I think so," Mbia told the Daily Mail.

"He gave everything for everybody at this club. I think it's the players' fault. I think if the players had the same mentality under Mark Hughes they have now, we would not be in this position.

"The manager was never the problem. Mark Hughes has quality, Harry Redknapp has quality.

"Harry Redknapp gives the players confidence, but Mark Hughes is the same. But the players didn't want to give their best for Mark Hughes.

"I don't know why it's like that. We should have done the same when the previous manager was here. Maybe they are more afraid of Harry."
