QPR technical director Chris Ramsey has spoken of the challenge of establishing a new culture at the club.

Ramsey is an integral part of the Hoops' plans to start developing their own players using the club's youth academy, and while the set-up looks strong, the former-manager says it could be a while before it's 'where they want it'.

Speaking to GetWestLondon about his role at the club, he said: "I think whatever happens when you go in somewhere you try and make a culture change.

"That’s not to say that the culture was not a good one, but you change it to suit yourself when you come in, and that’s going to take time. That’s one of the things that happens in any academy regime, it probably takes the best part of a decade to get it exactly where you want it because obviously if you’re bringing in under-9s, they’re not going to get into the first team for 11 or 12 years.

"This will be something that in years to come we’ll look back and say ‘do you remember when we didn’t focus enough’, but the teams are about getting one or two through; you’re never going to get 10 players through to the first team.

"The way Les has set everything up, it’s a ‘one club’ mentality, rather than the youth team being ones, the development team being one and the senior team being another one. We’re one entity and we’re putting it together so everyone slips through having the right pathway created for them."
