- "That's what we're there for and nothing will change from that perspective. I want to play and enjoy myself and hopefully win as many game as I can with QPR.
- "I want to get back into the Premier League as soon as possible. I felt we could do that speaking to the manager we had at the time, Paulo.
- "With his thoughts and how he wanted to the game to be played I thought QPR was the right place to be.
- "He was amazing. Everybody will tell you he won back-to-back Champions Leagues but in terms of my time in football I don't think I've ever met anyone with his knowledge of football. It's just not possible to catch him out.
- "I remember when I started there and I first talked to him; we must have been talking for two hours without even wondering about the time.
- "He'll be back - very soon from what I'm hearing..." Sky Sport
