Redknapp slams QPR players

15 April 2013 12:43

QPR manager Harry Redknapp has questioned the motivation of his players and suggested his squad is overrated.

Defeat at Everton on Saturday left QPR 10 points from safety, prompting Redknapp to accuse his players of lacking the mental qualities required for

a relegation battle.

"You say we have talented players but are they that talented? I don't know really," he told reporters.

"You

have some experienced players but what you need is a good group of

characters, a good group of people together and you have not got any

problems when you have that."

The London club's seemingly

unavoidable relegation is expected to trigger an exodus from the club,

but Redknapp has dismissed those suggestions and believes the

Championship is the right level for many of his players.

"It's not a case of players wanting to leave suddenly," Redknapp said.

"I hear that all the time that if they get relegated they want to go because they don't want to play in the Championship.

"But if they played better they would not be in the Championship so that's a load of cobblers."

Chairman

Tony Fernandes has previously insisted the club's finances are under

control, but with many QPR players on high wages that could dissuade

interest from other teams, Redknapp concedes the playing roster may be

difficult to shake up in the event of relegation.

"Players won't

go," Redknapp said. "How are you going to get rid of them? They all have

contracts. I wish you could say players would leave but it isn't going

to happen.

"Who is going to pay them what they're earning here? It's going to be hard to shift them."
