Faurlin targets new deal at Queens Park Rangers

Inside Loftus Road

Alejandro Faurlin says that he is keen to repay the faith shown in him by Queens Park Rangers after three long-term injuries.

 

Queens Park Rangers midfielder Alejandro Faurlin has suggested to Get West London that he is keen to secure a new contract at Loftus Road.

Since arriving at the club in 2009 Faurlin has endured terrible luck with injuries, with the Argentine finding himself sidelined with cruciate ligament problems on three occasions.

To his credit, Faurlin has fought back each time and gone on to make 153 appearances in all competitions, but he is approaching the end of his existing deal which runs out in the summer.

However, while acknowledging that he would be delighted to extend his stay with the Hoops, he has insisted that he is not looking further ahead than the next game, which sees QPR travel to the North West of England to face Championship strugglers Bolton Wanderers.

“I cannot get ahead of things; it’s just week-by-week. I started slow, but lately I've been playing a lot and I’ve been fit for most of the games, which is the main thing," he said.

"I’ve already played 20 games this season so this is going well. I am where I wanted to be, playing football showing that I’m all right; I enjoy it.

“I need to get a certain amount of games and the club have the option. The club has been great with me and I haven't played really, so I want to prove that I can repay some of that confidence. The rest will take care of itself”.

Faurlin was absent from last weekend's 3-1 defeat at home to West London rivals Fulham due to an ongoing thigh problem, but he is expected to be back in contention for the trip to the Macron Stadium.
