QPR fans react on Twitter to Alejandro Faurlin's new contract

The Argentinian midfielder was given a one-year contract extension by the R's.

Queens Park Rangers' talented midfielder Alejandro Faurlin was this week awarded a new one year deal by the club as the Argentine seeks to continue his comeback from a succession of serious knee injuries.

Faurlin is now the Hoops' longest serving player having joined from Instituto in 2009, however the 28-year-old has just 133 appearances to his name in those six years, and a desperately disappointing handful of games from the last couple of seasons.

In the Premier League campaign just finished, Faurlin was unable to contribute as QPR were relegated to the Championship after just one season, appearing in the first two league matches as well as a League Cup tie, before rupturing his cruciate ligament for a third successive time.

Nevertheless, the midfielder remains a popular individual at Loftus Road, and the hope is clearly that he will be able to to offer something to Chris Ramsey's squad if he can finally get over his injury jinx.

After news emerged of his contract extension, supporters took to Twitter to discuss the decision by QPR, and most appreciated the faith the club were showing in the player:
