After a public fallout between Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp and midfielder Adel Taarabt, owner Tony Fernandes has called for unity in the club, reports BBC
“Need less politics and get behind Harry and the players. All players should be unified. (Our performance against) Liverpool showed what we are made of, good club, good fans, good players, great staff. No one is perfect. Let’s enjoy Monday (versus against Aston Villa) and hope everyone does their best,” he said on Twitter.
Redknapp was critical about Taarabt when asked following his side’s defeat to Liverpool, accusing the Moroccan of being overweight and having a poor attitude in training. Taarabt responded showcasing a slim torso, before Redknapp attacked him again for a lack of professionalism.
With QPR sitting at the foot of the table, Fernandes knows he needs the entire club all working together to get them up the table. In-house arguing won’t help their cause.
