Neil Warnock Says Adel Taarabt Can Leave QPR If He Wants
Queens Park Rangers boss Neil Warnock has said he will not stop the Moroccon midfielder leaving Loftus Road in the January transfer window.
Queens Park Rangers boss Neil Warnock has said he will not stop Moroccan midfielder Adel Taarabt leaving Loftus Road in the January transfer window.
Taarabt is yet to score a goal for his side yet this season although he scored fifteen times last season where he captained Rangers to promotion to the English top-flight. Warnock has said he hasn’t been informed that Adel wants to leave but he did say “If a player wants to leave they can leave. I like to treat every player the same.”
The 22-year-old was linked with a move away from London in the summer as French giants PSG were interested and put in a bid of a reported £13 million. Lately, though, tension has increased as Taarabt reportedly walked out after being replaced at half-time during QPR’s 6-0 defeat at Fulham.
“He has just got to realise that when you are in the spotlight like we all are you have to think a little bit further than the instant reaction” Neil Warnock added. Taarabt started his career with Tottenham Hotspur and since his arrival at QPR he’s been a hugely influential character and is still one of the first names on the team sheet, even with the tension building of late. Many thought he may of been dropped this campaign with all of Rangers new summer signings but Taarabt has kept his place in the new-look side and it shouldn’t be long before he grabs a goal.
In today’s 1-1 draw with Blackburn, Taarabat started on the bench but did come on at the 64th minute.
