Club Statement: QPR Internal Investigation

THE club can confirm that our internal investigation has now ended concerning The Telegraph's reporting on inferences made on September 28th relating to QPR manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink.

Throughout the comprehensive investigation, the club contacted and communicated with all the major parties involved, including The Telegraph, who failed to provide the club with the information previously requested.

Despite a number of requests from both the club and Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink's legal team for the information relating to the inferences made on September 28th, including video footage and a full transcript of the discussions that took place, nothing has been forthcoming.

As a result, and in the absence of any further evidence, the Board fully back QPR manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink and his explanations relating to these inferences.

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink openly admitted he was naive and, as such, has been reminded of his roles and responsibilities as manager of Queens Park Rangers Football Club.

He remains fully focused on his job as QPR manager, and he does so with the Board's unanimous support.
