Alejandro Faurlin names Adel Taarabt as the best player he's played with at Queens Park Rangers

Queens Park Rangers sold Adel Taarabt to Benfica in the summer transfer window.

Alejandro Faurlin has told Sky Sports FL72 podcast that Adel Taarabt is the best player he has played with at Queens Park Rangers.

Faurlin and Taarabt linked up for six seasons at Loftus Road, with the pair both arriving at the London club in 2009.

And the Argentinian midfielder was very impressed by Moroccan international’s talents during their time together at the R’s.

"For me, here at QPR, it would be Adel Taarabt," he said, when asked who was the best player he's played alongside. "We had great chemistry, and I really enjoyed playing with him."

Taarabt’s ability at QPR was never doubted, but his attitude meant that he never truly fulfilled his promise.

Taarabt showed his talent under Neil Warnock, but no other manager was able to get the very best out of the enigmatic midfielder.

The 26-year-old has now moved on from QPR, after a series of failed loan moves with the likes of Fulham and AC Milan.

Taarabt currently plays for Benfica in Portugal, but he hasn’t made an appearance for them so far and has made minimal impact since arriving in the summer transfer window.

Faurlin, meanwhile, is still playing a crucial part for QPR in the centre of their midfield after overcoming his injury struggles.
