Taarabt desire to leave Loftus Road an error, insists Warnock
Wednesday 06 July 2011
The QPR manager Neil Warnock has admitted that his captain, Adel Taarabt, looks set to leave Loftus Road this summer – but thinks the youngster will grow to regret his decision.
The 22-year-old was a key catalyst in their promotion to the Premier League, leading to speculation linking him with a host of elite European clubs.
Arsenal and Chelsea have been mooted as potential destinations, while Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly made a £13.5m bid.
"He is missing his family in Marseilles," Warnock said. "If we get a big offer from a club in France that obviously gives him a chance to be closer to them."
