QPR chairman Tony Fernandes believes under-fire skipper Ji-Sung Park needs time to settle at Loftus Road following his summer arrival from Manchester United.

The 31-year-old has struggled to make an impact for his new club after seven successful years at Old Trafford.

But Fernandes, who sanctioned the South Koreans arrival in west London, told Yonhap Neew Agency: “It’s a new experience for him in that he’s never played so much.”

“He also has to adjust to new players.

“I am not the sort of person that’s going to write people off after six or seven games.”

Park came in for heavy criticism from former R’s man Lee Cook last week. He told The Sun: “Every time I saw Park at United, he was a workhorse

“For me, he doesn’t seem to be working as hard as he did there.”

But it appears Fernandes is prepared to be patient with Park as bottom-of-the-table QPR go in search of their first win of the season against Everton on Sunday.
