Gallen fearful over QPR's future
Kevin Gallen
Gallen made 366 legaue appearances for QPR
Former QPR striker Kevin Gallen has criticised the club's chairman and fears for the London outfit's future.

Gianni Paladini is prepared to sell his stake in the Championship outfit along with his fellow Italian owners.

"I'm very fearful for the club and I don't see how it's going to get better with the current regime," MK Dons striker Gallen told BBC London 94.9.

"They're putting the club under serious pressure by extending the debt. I don't think anyone will buy at the moment."

Gallen was released by QPR at the end of the season and has spent more than 14 years at Loftus Road in two separate spells.

"You've got to start at the top," added the 31-year-old who started his career with the club when they were in the Premiership in the nineties.

"Two years ago when there was a different chairman we were getting average gates of 15-16,000 and I think last year it went down to 13-14,000 so to me that says it all."

"I feel for the fans. In years gone by the fans would have got together and wouldn't have stood for it, but at the moment they are standing for it and I don't know why."
