If Jordan Cousins isn't at the QPR training ground working hard to improve his game then it is likely he will be taking his dog for a walk.
The 22-year-old, who joined from Charlton in the summer, prefers to lead a quiet life rather than the brash style people expect from some modern day footballers.
Cousins described the training as 'very intense' and believes it to be the perfect way for him to keep a balance between work and rest.
He said: “I live a very quiet life, it’s just me and my dog at home. As soon as I get home and out of the training ground I try to switch off from football, as it is very intense.
“Outside of the game I just like to keep it real with the family and take the dog for walks – just keep everything simple.”
Cousins would describe himself as a family man and doesn't want to take the extravagances that can come with being a footballer.
He added: “It’s 100 miles per hour when you come here, so I need to take a back seat and relax when I have my time off. I like the simple things and nothing too extravagant – that’s just me.
“As a footballer you can’t be out all the time and live a crazy life, otherwise it definitely affects your football.
“I just like to keep it nice, quiet and family orientated, so when I come into football I’m full of rest and energy, so I’m ready to go.”
