QPR Net Interview with Gordon Jago

QPRnet: We had a good season in your first full campaign in charge but towards the end of it you lost Rodney Marsh to Manchester City, how did that come about and was it something you were in favour of?

GJ: Rodney wanted to leave QPR, he thought that, even though he’d earned his first England cap whilst playing for us, that to get carry on earning call ups he had to be with a first division club. I tried to convince him that we were heading for the first division but unfortunately Manchester City had made it no secret that they wanted him and consequently he wanted to leave. The Chairman negotiated a terrific deal for us and we received £200,000 pounds clear, which was a great deal for us at the time.
