Neil Warnock claims Queens Park Rangers Alejandro Faurlin is the best midfielder he's ever worked with

Neil Warnock has been placed in temporary charge of Queens Park Rangers following the dismissal of Chris Ramsey.

Queens Park Rangers temporary boss Neil Warnock has told Sky Sports’ FL72 podcast that he believes Alejandro Faurlin is the best midfield player he has worked with in his long coaching career.

Faurlin was part of the QPR squad which achieved promotion under Warnock during his last spell at the Loftus Road helm, and the pair have a very good relationship.

Faurlin spoke earlier in the week about his joy that Warnock was back at Loftus Road, as the Kilburn Times reported, and the 66-year-old boss has returned the compliment.

“Ale Faurlin is probably the best midfield player I’ve ever had working under me,” Warnock said. “He’s had two terrible injuries, but when I see him performing it gives me a lot of pleasure. That’s the enjoyment part of management.”

Faurlin’s quality is undisputed, but his time at QPR has been plagued by injury, and he will be keen to stay off the treatment table this season, as he links up with his old boss again.

Warnock has been placed in temporary charge at Loftus Road following the dismissal of former QPR manager Chris Ramsey.

Ramsey was relieved of his duties last week, with the R’s languishing in mid-table, and the new manager will be tasked with guiding the side up the Championship standings.

Warnock has confirmed to talkSPORT that he does not want the job on a permanent basis, but he could be in charge for the side’s next match – which comes against Middlesbrough after the international break.
