QPR's Vice Chairman on Club's High-Level Future Plans


Coming on QPR's Official Site - BHATIA EXCLUSIVE
When Flavio Briatore became involved, we got excited. When Bernie Ecclestone became involved, we got very excited.
When Lakshmi Mittal became involved, we thought someone was having us on!
There's a buzz around Loftus Road like never before - a buzz which has been created by the aforementioned trio.
And QPR World continues to bring you the thoughts of the people that matter.
Amit Bhatia is the Vice-Chairman of QPR Holdings Limited, and the representative of the Mittal family.
The son-in-law of Lakshmi - reportedly the fifth richest man in the world - it is fair to say when Amit talks, QPR fans listen. And so does the rest of English football.
The potential is huge. But why have the Mittal family become involved in QPR? Are they really planning to compete with Chelsea? Do they intend to invest enough money to see the R's win the Premiership title? What's their message for R's fans who feared Chelsea had moved out of reach following the Russian revolution at Stamford Bridge?
QPR World put these questions to Amit, and this exclusive interview will be available for all subscribers on Wednesday. QPR

Skysports - Bhatia - QPR owners have a limit - Vice-chairman vows to spend money wisely
Last updated: 2nd March 2008

Amit Bhatia insists there is a limit to how much money Queens Park Rangers' multi-millionaire owners will invest in the club.
Flavio Briatore, Bernie Ecclestone and Lakshmi Mittal have all injected cash into the Championship club with a view to taking QPR back into the Premier League.
QPR Holding Limited's vice-chairman Bhatia is confident that Briatore and Ecclestone can help to realise the club's dream of top-flight football.
But Bhatia also acknowledged that the new owners will not lavishly throw away money in pursuit of trying to match West London rivals Chelsea.
"We didn't get involved in any of this to be second best, so we hope we are going to make it to the Premiership and, after that, the Champions League and who knows?" Bhatia told Sky Sports.
We are committed to backing this club for however long it takes. We're involved with the best people with Flavio and Bernie, and we have a tremendous amount of respect for everybody involved here.
"These two gentlemen know the business of sport. We'll spend money and it will require money to get to where we want to go, and we will spend it wisely.
"Is there a limit? Yes, with everything there is a limit.
"Are we willing to spend wisely and take the club to where it wants to go? Yes, absolutely. So the financial investment will come in, as results come in, as and when it's needed.
"I think we will compete with Chelsea in the near future." Skysports
