Ian Holloway says it will take QPR two more transfer windows to significantly turn their fortunes around.
Manager Holloway made wholesale changes in January and wants to further revamp his squad after losing 18 of his 30 matches since replacing the sacked Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink.
Financial Fair Play rules and ongoing legal wrangling over the scale of QPR’s fine for the club’s previous lavish spending mean there will be less money to spend.
But Holloway is nevertheless keen to bring in new players during the summer and beyond.
“It’s going to take another couple of windows. We’re not moving forward money-wise, we’ll be moving backwards,” he said.
“Other clubs might be adding to their budgets, but we’ve thrown a load of money away and we’re not going to do that anymore.
“Hopefully, with the new scouting network I’m putting together, I’ll be able to coach and I’ll be able to get people I can have.”
