Queens Park Rangers says Thank You AirAsia
The Queens Park Rangers Asia Tour came to an end on after the team beat Malaysian and Indonesian favourites. Before QPR departed from Surabaya, the team thanked their official partner, AirAsia with a special thank you message at the Juanda International Airport.
The team lined up in front of the newly launched Alan Mcdonald tribute aircraft which features the QPR livery holding large placards which spelt THANK YOU AIRASIA.
The QPR Asia Tour was held in three different cities beginning with Kota Kinabalu followed by Kuala Lumpur where the Rangers respectively beat both Sabah Select and Kelantan FA with a comfortable 5-0 win. Their last game in Surabaya saw QPR beating Persebaya with a 2-1 score.
QPR Team Manager Mark Hughes said the tour was the prefect preparation for the team.
It was great and one that we will remember for a very long time to come. From our point of view, it was a fitness preparation and we were able to get a lot of game time into almost all the squad. In the end we were able to win all three games, which were important for us and have helped us prepare for the upcoming Premier League.
