Coach Dunga Sues English Club

News Americas, LONDON, England, Mon. Aug. 15, 2011: Brazil’s former coach is suing English club, the Queens Park Rangers Football Club.

Dunga claims the club owes him £750,000, a loan he made to them in 2006. Dunga was an investor in QPR under previous owners but now says he hopes the new owners, who include Flavio Briatore and Bernie Ecclestone, will agree to repay his loan.

“I loaned my money to QPR in good faith when they needed it and am very disappointed that the new owners, who are very wealthy, are now refusing to pay it back. I am fully confident in the English system of justice and that the court will help me recover my loans,” Dunga, 47, said in a statement.
QPR has declined comment to date.

Queens Park Rangers Football Club, (usually referred to as QPR), is an English professional football club, based in Shepherd’s Bush, Hammersmith and Fulham, west London. They finished the 2010-11 Football League Championship as champions and will return to the Premier League during 2011–12 for the first time in 15 years.

QPR was founded in 1882, and their traditional colors are blue and white. The club has been managed by Neil Warnock since March 2010 and the current chairman of the club is Gianni Paladini.
