Thomas Hitzlsperger Lifts Lid On QPR’s Reckless Spending Habits

By Chris Wright

Soccer - Barclays Premier League - Everton v Chelsea - Goodison Park

With the news yesterday that QPR have filed ginormous £65.4million losses for 2012-2013 (more than any other English club) and that they spent more on wages (£68million!) than Champions League finalists Borussia Dortmund did in the same period in their unsuccessful attempts to stay in the Premier League, former Germany midfielder Thomas Hitzlsperger has lifted the lid on the club – managed by Harry Redknapp, we should point out – and their reckless frittering away of other people’s money.

In a Tweet sent to German journalist Raphael Honigstein, Hitzlsperger claimed he once approached QPR with the intention of signing for the club and, well, we’ll let the man himself take up the story…

Yep, injury-riddled Hitzlsperger had the brass balls to ask for £5million a year in wages and QPR, without blinking, casually shovelled a £5million sweetener/signing fee into his agent’s top pocket –  and this is, we can only presume, twithout ever having so much as met the man before!

No wonder Tony Fernandes feels like he’s been “exploited“.
