Briatore's QPR Spending Plans

Briatore rules out spending spree
Flavio Briatore insists he and QPR's board of billionaires will not be tempted into a Roman Abramovich-style spending spree at Loftus Road.

Rangers have been dubbed 'the Chelsea of the Championship' after Briatore, co-owner Bernie Ecclestone and the Mittal family invested heavily in the west Londoners.
Boss Luigi De Canio has already spent around £5million on eight players this month, but the Renault Formula 1 chief is determined to turn Rangers into a successful business as well as a successful team, and not just a rich man's plaything.
"This is serious project in business and in sport, we want to become a great club in England and Europe," the Italian told Sky Sports News.
"QPR is one of the richest clubs in the world but I promise we will not be spending money. We will never do something crazy.
"We are not interested in top players. We want to do it our way. Shevchenko and Ronaldinho are cheaper to watch on TV than to have in your team." Teamtalk
