Mark Hughes is preparing to face a hostile reception when he returns to QPR with his Stoke City side in the Premier League today.
The Welshman suffered a torrid 10 months in charge at Loftus Road during 2012, and left under a cloud following a poor start to the 2012-13 campaign in which QPR failed to win their first 12 matches.
Ahead of his first return to the club since then, the 50-year-old is expecting the home fans to make their feelings known in the capital.
“It was a difficult period,” he said. “It was frustrating, and I will be honest and say that the record in the second season wasn’t anywhere good enough. As a virtue of that I lost my job there.
“I’m a big guy and I have had a lot of stick from a lot of people in the game. QPR fans may want to vent their frustrations at me and I will take it on my shoulders.”
