The agent and adviser says he is not to blame for the big money flops.
Kia Joorabchian, the football agent and adviser responsible for bringing Javier Maschearno and Carlos Tevez to West Ham in 2006, has said that QPR’s shambolic transfer dealings over the last 12 months are not his fault.
Joorabchian advises newly appointed Stoke City manager Mark Hughes, who was Rovers boss between January and November 2012.
Under Hughes’ reign at Loftus Road the club signed no fewer than 16 players, including £15m being spent on Bobby Zamora and Esteban Granero alone.
Yet despite the huge number of transfer dealings going on at QPR, Joorabchian claims he was responsible for just one and has no influence over the Welshman’s decisions on signing new players.
“I’m always interested to read or hear that I was responsible for so many of the players signed by QPR last season,” the agent told BBC Sport.
“In fact I was only involved with the signing of one, Julio Cesar.”
Joorabchian has been closely linked with Hughes ever since the 49-year-old was manager at Fulham and continued to be so at the Hoops until the former Manchester United striker was sacked.
The 41-year-old has been a somewhat controversial figure in English football ever since he brought the Argentinian duo of Tevez and Mascherano to Upton Park in the mid-2000s.
The shock move was shrouded in secrecy and accusations were made that Joorabchain himself owned the players rather than the Hammers, a scenario that is illegal in England.
It reached a head at the end of the 2006/07 Premier League season when a Tevez goal relegated Sheffield United ahead of the Irons and the Yorkshire club began a law suit as a result.
Meanwhile, QPR’s high spending and relegation to the Championship this season has left the club in turmoil, but Joorabchian has been keen to distance himself.
