QPR boss Neil Warnock feels he'd be out of the club if Tony Fernandes had not bought it.
Warnock moved to Loftus Road to work for vice-chairman Amit Bhatia, who quit in the summer.
â€śHe was the reason I came here,â€ť said Warnock. â€śIt was a big blow when he left.â€ť
Bhatia returned when Fernandes moved in â€“ and Warnock, whose side take on Aston Villa today, is delighted.
He admitted: â€śI did find the summer difficult and if Tony had not bought the club when he did, I could have left after losing 4-0 to Bolton.
â€śI was told the takeover was on but I wouldnâ€™t have been around long if not. I just wanted an opportunity.â€ť
