QPR needed Henry’s experience – Hasselbaink

QPR midfielder Karl Henry

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink said he felt QPR needed Karl Henry’s experience against Burnley.

Rangers drew 0-0 at Loftus Road in Hasselbaink’s first match since taking over as manager.

The Dutchman deployed Henry on the right flank, dropping youngster Michael Petrasso.

“It was tactical. I spoke to Michael and I had to make a choice for the bench,” Hasselbaink explained.

“I was always going to start with Karl Henry on the right because of Burnley and because I needed a bit more experience in midfield.”
