QPR director of football Les Ferdinand says that his role is 'difficult to understand', but that he's determined to help the club back it's former glory by working closely with Ian Holloway.
Speaking to the Daily Mail, Ferdinand explained his role in more detail, saying that it's not as simple as just signing whoever he likes.
He said: "We will look everywhere for players, the trouble is supporters like the idea of finding the next Jamie Vardy but if you sign a non-League striker, the complaint is you’re not competing.
"Not everyone understands the director of football role. I don’t tell the manager who to sign but if he needs a certain type of player, I find out the budget and give him realistic options.
"Stan Collymore once suggested Real Madrid and Chelsea need a director of football but QPR don’t. It’s actually the other way round. The biggest clubs can afford to go out and get the best players in the world. At QPR you can’t do that, you have to buy the right ones."
