Redknapp: Promotion Won't Be Easy for QPR

MOST COMMENTED

Harry Redknapp talked about what his Queens Park Rangers players can expect in the npower Championship next season, after the London club was relegated over the weekend. Having needed a win to stand any chance or climbing out of the bottom three, QPR could only manage a 0-0 draw against Reading, which was also relegated, at the Madejski Stadium on Sunday.

"There's a lot of work to be done next year and it will be very difficult to get promoted," Redknapp told Sky Sports. "There are some good teams in the Championship. The first thing I said to them is we have to come back in preseason and get super fit because the Championship is Saturday-midweek, Saturday-midweek and if you're not fit enough to go the pace, you won't survive and you won't get out of that league.”

He added: "That's the key. Whoever the players we have here, they've got to be worked on in preseason and they've got to be willing to want to get super fit to compete at that level. It will be a big challenge. There are lots of good teams and massive clubs. There are big clubs who have all been in the Premier League before and we are just one of them.”

QPR chairman Tony Fernandes, who is also chairman of Formula One team Caterham, wrote on his official Twitter account: "Sorry to all QPR fans. But the plan goes on. Now more than ever. We owe it to you. Took three years to get Caterham right. No quitting."
