London Informer/Jacob Murtagh - Paulo Sousa rotation wins support of QPR players
- QPR boss Paulo Sousa's insistence on a rotation policy has found whole-hearted support from his troops - even if they're on the end of his chopping and changing.
The Portugese boss has yet to field the same QPR starting XI twice in a row. Admittedly, injuries have also played their part, but the manager's insistence on fielding the freshest side available has won over Kaspar Gorkss.
Five players were axed from the starting XI for the Boxing Day draw at Charlton, and he rung the changes again at Watford two days later and for the FA Cup home draw with Burnley.
Gorkss starred over the festive period, but was still bombed out for the Boxing Day trip to Vicarage Road before returning for the shut-out against the Clarets.
But the Latvian international played all 90 minutes in the heartening 2-0 away win at Derby on Saturday.
He said: "I think the new manager wants to have a look at what he's got. He's said he wants to use every player, and we have four good centre-backs, so it's good competition.
"If you have two games in three days you need to rest somebody and I don't mind that.
"As a footballer you want to play games, but we have a big squad and the boss wants to see everyone in action." London Informer
