QPR latest: Fer on 'confusing' Redknapp, Caulker wants three points against champions

The latest Queens Park Rangers news, views and rumours.

Leroy Fer

QPR midfielder Leroy Fer has branded Harry Redknapp's comments about his involvement with the Netherlands national team 'confusing.'

R's boss Redknapp has expressed his frustration that Fer's participation with the Dutch national side, especially during the World Cup, has affected his fitness.

But the 24-year-old has warned his manager that he sees playing for his country as a source of pride.

“I’m very proud to play for my country and I’m part of the group, even if I’m not starting in the Dutch team. It’s a bit confusing for the gaffer to say that because I did go to the World Cup," Fer is quoted as saying by the London Evening Standard.

“It’s true I was behind the group [at Rangers] in terms of fitness, and I also got injured at the World Cup. That made it a bit harder to come back - but I’m delighted to be a part of the Dutch squad.”

Steven Caulker

Meanwhile, QPR defender Steven Caulker is of the opinion that his side can beat Premier League champions Manchester City this weekend.

The west London side host City in Saturday's evening kick-off at Loftus Road.

“We always want to win games. We’re pleased that we’re conceding less goals and we hope to get more clean sheets and get more points on the board," Caulker told QPR's official Youtube channel.

“Next week, at home, our home form’s been good, we’ll look to pick up three points against Manchester City.”
