QPR team flies to Dubai for recharge

Harry Redknapp and the entire Queens Park Rangers squad has jetted off to Dubai for a mid-season getaway aimed at reviving the struggling team's fortunes.

With QPR battling to raise themselves off the bottom of the Premier League table and a 4-1 defeat to Swansea last week, boss Redknapp decided to give his players the chance to train on better surfaces than those available to him at home. Recent extreme weather conditions were said to have affected the pitch at the team's Harlington training ground.

"Our training ground at Harlington is not the best, to say the least," said Redknapp, according to the club's website. "When it rains, the pitch floods. When it snows, we can't get on it. We've got no undersoil heating. So this is an opportunity to get out and train on some good surfaces," explained the beleaguered manager.

QPR are not the only team seeking training opportunities in warmer climes, with West Ham also said to be heading for the Middle Eastern state. Manager Sam Allardyce explained on the West Ham website the benefits of flying abroad to train in the sun.

"When the lads can train in short sleeves and shorts, and the weathers in the 60s, 70s, 80s degrees, they don't want to finish training, they just want to carry on. You get an awful lot more out of them," he said. "Most clubs have already been away. I've talked to a lot of managers and they've already taken the opportunity to get away when they can," he added.

"Everything that goes with Dubai is fantastic, it's one of the best resorts in the world today."
