Fernandes admits QPR dropping training HQ plans

QPR chairman Tony Fernandes admits they may drop plans for a £30 million training centre.

Fernandes said the scale of local opposition to the plan to build a facility at Warren Farm in Hanwell, west London, had made him rethink his plans despite defeating a legal challenge in the High Court in March.

Fernandes said he was now considering upgrading the club's existing ramshackle training ground at Harlington instead.

He said: "We are going to move on. Imperial (College) are the land owners here [at Harlington]. We are talking to Imperial about expanding and making it bigger and better here.

"We are going to have a board meeting in a few months when we are going to decide. If I was a betting man I would say it would be here."

He added: "The judicial reviews keep coming. The local residents keep complaining - it's only a few but it doesn't take many to stop something."
