Rigg leaves Manchester City to take QPR role

Mike Rigg has departed Manchester City to take the technical director's role at QPR.

The 43-year old has again linked up with R's manager Mark Hughes after working with him at City, Blackburn Rovers and the Wales national team and is looking forward to using his expertise for the good of the West London club.

"I am very pleased to be here," Rigg told the club's official website.

"When I sat down with the owners and Mark [Hughes] recently they sold the project at Queens Park Rangers to me. I see where they want to take the club and it is something I want to be a part of.

"I have worked with Mark in a number of different roles so I have a very good understanding of what he wants and what he needs.

"Player acquisition is a big part of football and it is where an enormous amount of investment is made. That's where we must get it right.

"My role involves a mixture of looking at the immediate needs for the football club as well as trying to make sure we have a long-term plan in place for bringing players through into the first team."
