QPR midfielder says club is 'not easy for managers and players'

Faurlin speaks out over his time with Rangers

Journey: Alejandro Faurlin (L)

QPR midfielder Alejandro Faurlin reckons he’s going to write a book about his time at QPR - a big fat tome, if the midfielder has anything to do with it.

In his six plus years with the club, the Argentine has witnessed and sometimes starred in a blockbuster that makes Game of Thrones look like a footnote.

Restored to the first team for the last two matches, Faurlin reckons he has turned a new page with the return of Neil Warnock for the second time, but admits life at Loftus Road has often been fraught.

The player has waved goodbye to nine different managers since he first put pen to paper in July, 2009; and was then the unwarranted focus of attention over his transfer that looked set to scupper the Championship title in 2011, only to see the mortal threat lifted hours before the last match.

Behind the scenes, the previous management bacame a laughing stock after the infamous 'Four Year Plan' film released in 2011.

And worst of all, Faurlin has suffered three cruciate ligament injuries that would have retired lesser mortals.

The 29-year-old admits he’s seen the lot with Rs - except lasting stability.

“This club is no an easy club to be around,” he said. “Every year something is happening at QPR. It’s not an easy club for managers and players. How many players have there been in the last four or five years?

“I’m the only one left now, but Neil is back and to think he is 67, but still loves to work. I too am happy to be at Loftus Road and on the pitch.

“But the idea of a book? I think I will - all about my setbacks and time here; I’m sure it could be a big one.”

“A new manager? It’s not down to us to decide,” he added. “The club will decide. Chris (Ramsey) going was a shame, but after Neil’s return we need to create a positive run.”
