Air Asia boss Tony Fernandes sends QPR players to pre-season tour on Easyjet
QPR’s players were said to be stunned after flying to their pre-season training camp with Easyjet.
The reality of relegation must have hit when they discovered that Air Asia tycoon and QPR owner Tony Fernandes had arranged for them to fly with the budget airline.
Harry Redknapp’s side flew to a Slovenian airport before getting a 30-minute coach trip to their training base in Austria.
Organising a private jet for the squad would have cost just £5,000 more, reports the Mirror, but Fernandes has set his stall out for a more prudent approach to club ownership this season.
The players were treated to Speedy Boarding though.
Redknapp himself did not make the trip. He is recovering after knee surgery and has left Steve McClaren in charge of training.
