Tony Fernandes explains controversial Yun loan, responds to question about selling QPR

The Queens Park Rangers owner has been discussing the defender and his feelings about the west London club.

QPR owner Tony Fernandes has explained why the west London club loaned Yun Suk-Young out to Charlton Athletic, according to the club's official Youtube channel.

Indeed, the 26-year-old was recently sent across London on a short-term basis and fans were not happy to hear news of arguably their best defender being allowed to leave.

But Fernandes has explained that manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink wanted a different type of player - while the defender himself was frustrated not playing.

Meanwhile, the QPR owner also responded to a question about writing off debt and the potential of selling his shares at the club.

Fernandes told QPR: "If Ian wants me out, then I'll sell up. But there's nothing further from my mind. The enthusiasm I have for this club hasn't changed.

"I'm still like a kid when we score, I love seeing our fans happy. I hope we can reach that nirvana of building a club that is a Premier League club."

And, on the controversial Yun loan, the R's owner said: "There's so much debate on Yun. The manager felt that long term it's not the kind of player he wants. He was getting frustrated not playing and Jimmy wanted a different type of player."

QPR fans certainly weren't happy when Yun was loaned out but Saturday's 2-0 win over Birmingham City will have calmed those on edge at Loftus Road.

Hopefully, the R's can show some consistency - one win means nothing if they don't win another game for a month - but this was a convincing victory that boosted the confidence of every supporter.
