Alejandro Faurlin speaks highly of Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink's management of QPR

Queens Park Rangers midfielder Alejandro Faurlin has played 20 times so far this season.

Queens Park Rangers midfielder Alejandro Faurlin has told Get West London that he is enjoying working with Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink at Loftus Road.

Faurlin has been an integral part of Hasselbaink’s line-up ever since the Dutchman took charge.

And although Rangers’ form has not been particularly impressive under Hasselbaink’s stewardship, Faurlin insists that everyone is enjoying working with the former Burton Albion boss.

“It’s been great,” Faurlin said. “He’s young and just starting as a manager and he’s looked really good. He’s very demanding, very professional; we are starting to click and understand what he really wants.

“He’s played a lot of football at the highest level in different leagues, so he has a lot of experience in that aspect as well. I think he’s going to be a very good manager.”

Faurlin has found it difficult to stay off the treatment table in recent seasons, but he is enjoying his longest run in the first-team for some time.

The Argentine has already racked up 20 appearances this campaign and he is regarded as one of the best passers in the Football League.

Faurlin’s importance to QPR was highlighted in his absence last weekend, as the side lost 3-1 to Fulham without ever having control in the match.

That defeat has meant that Hasselbaink has won just two of his first 12 matches in charge of the R’s, and they have slipped down to 14th place in the Championship table as a result.
