QPR boss Harry Redknapp is torn between Fabio and Jose Bosingwa to fill the right-back spot ahead of the clash with Southampton.
Fabio (pic) was ruled out of last weekend’s 2-0 reverse against Manchester United after his parent club denied him permission to play.
Instead, Harry recalled Bosingwa for his first appearance since the Portuguese controversially refused to sit on the bench against Fulham back in December.
As a result of his sulk, the ex-Chelsea defender suffered a £100,000 fine – two weeks wages, but played the entire 90 minutes against United to herald muted enthusiasm from his manager.
“Jose did all right didn’t he?” admitted Redknapp. “He did what’s he is paid to do and I had no complaints.
“I took him with us to Swansea a couple of weeks ago and didn’t even put him on the bench. I did that to test his attitude and he was fine.”
