Queens Park Rangers’ Shaun Wright-Phillips explains his situation

Shaun Wright Phillips

Former Chelsea and Manchester City winger Shaun Wright-Phillips insists that he is still committed to Queens Park Rangers.

Queens Park Rangers winger Shaun Wright-Phillips has assured the club’s fans on Kicca.com that he is fully committed to the club.

Wright-Phillips has been on the books of QPR since 2011, but his importance in the team has dwindled this season.

The 33-year-old former Chelsea attacker has made just two appearances in the Premier League this campaign, in which he has scored no goal or created any chances.

The Englishman has won 50% of his duels and has an admirable pass accuracy of 81%.

Wright-Phillips failed to make a single appearance in the league when Harry Redknapp was in charge of QPR, but he has gained confidence and playing time under new manager Chris Ramsey.

The former Manchester City player has now assured the QPR supporters that he has worked hard over the past month, and that he is ready to give his all in the London club’s struggle for survival in the Premier League.

“I've worked really hard to get back in the matchday squad,” Wright-Phillips wrote on Kicca.com. "There have been some really tough times trying to get back in but I always believed in my head things could change quickly and I could get my chance again.

“I tried to put extra effort in training but that's not always good enough for some managers. I just had to keep believing in my ability.

“The thing is I still think I can help and I want to help. I want to play. It's not in my nature to sit in the stands and pick up my money. If that was the case I'd just say I was injured the whole time. I'd still get paid. But it's not, I want to play.”

QPR are currently third from bottom in the Premier League table with 22 points from 28 matches, three points behind 17th-placed Aston Villa.
