Co-owner Flavio Briatore insists QPR have complete trust in manager Neil Warnock to take the club forward and compete in the transfer market this summer.
Carlo Ancelotti is the latest big-name Italian to be linked to the Loftus Road club as they prepare for life in the Barclays Premier League next season following his sacking as Chelsea manager on Sunday. That same day, fellow co-owner Bernie Ecclestone had confirmed that Warnock "is staying - 100%," adding: "We don't want to get rid of him."
Now Briatore has voiced his support for Warnock, claiming funds will be made available to allow him to strengthen the squad on their return to the top flight for the first time in 15 years. "The aim is to make sure next season we are competitive, to keep all the good players we have in the squad at the moment," said Briatore. "The coach now is looking to set up a fantastic club for next year."
He added: "As for players, this is the coach's decision. We completely trust Neil and we will try and help him put together the best squad for us to be competitive in the Premier League.
"Not for one minute do we have doubts about Neil. Zero."
Briatore was speaking in Monaco on a rare return to the Formula One paddock since a universal ban from actively being involved in motor sport through to 2013 was imposed following his role in the Renault 'crash-gate' saga.
