Briatore promises funds for QPR
Potential new QPR owner Flavio Briatore has pledged to make January transfer funds available to boss John Gregory but says success will not come quickly.

Renault Formula One team boss Briatore, and motorsport chief Bernie Ecclestone, had their 14m offer to buy QPR recommended by the club's board.

Briatore told the club's website: "QPR are a club with a fantastic history.

"We want to make sure fans understand that something is not just going to happen overnight."

Briatore added: "It's not only players that we need to address but also organisation and everything that has built up at QPR.

"We arrived at the last second and it was impossible to buy players because everything closed on the Friday.

"But now we will save up until January but in the meantime we need to motivate everyone at the club from the coach to Gianni (Paladini) to everybody because we know that finance is needed to support the team. That is our duty and we expect everyone else to fulfil theirs."
