Ealing Gazette/Yann Tear - QPR boss backs Adel Taarabt's international exileOct 27 2010

NEIL Warnock has no intention of talking Adel Taarabt out of a quitting international football, if his star player goes ahead with a threat to stop playing.

The Moroccan was furious when coach Dominique Cuperly left him on the bench in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in Tanzania after a 22-hour round trip.

Taarabt has vowed to step down from the international stage at the age of 21 because of his wasted trip.

[b]Warnock told the Gazette: "I think it's entirely an individual decision and if Adel decides he doesn't want to play for Morocco, that has to be up to him. I wouldn't try and talk him out of quitting.

“Obviously, though, it would be beneficial for us because there's a lot of travelling involved and I think he came back shattered after that last trip.[/b]
“I wondered if I should leave him out of the game against Norwich when he returned and in the first half he wasn't very good. Players react in different ways to the international break but certainly in his case, there are a lot of hours involved.[/b]

Taarabt said: "I will stop playing for Morocco this season. I want to concentrate on my club, as the national team disrespected me.

“The fact I was called up to face Tanzania and not used did not please me at all. I want to play all the time, so I'm retiring as I did not play for them.

“I spent 22 hours on aeroplanes. I did not play and nobody explained to me why.

“The Moroccan FA has invited me to play against Northern Ireland next month, but I don't plan to respond favourably." Ealing Gazette

QPR Official Site - KICK IT OUT!
Posted on: Wed 27 Oct 2010

On Saturday, QPR will celebrating equality and diversity in football by supporting Kick It Out's One Game, One Community weeks of action campaign.

As well as all the professional Clubs, Kick It Out - football's equality and inclusion campaign - will be working with community groups, grass roots clubs, schools, colleges and places of worship to encourage all football fans to get involved in events, activities and celebrations in their local area.

We have dedicated Saturday's fixture against Burnley as our day of action in support of the campaign.

QPR defender Fitz Hall told Hoops: "When we play football, we play together as a team - our backgrounds don't come into it.

"People are discriminated against for many different reasons and as a society we have to realise that the population is always changing. We need to become more tolerant and accepting and work together."

Lord Herman Ouseley, Chair of Kick It Out said: "Collectively, we continue to make strides in the fight for equality across the game. Clubs, however, have a unique power to act as the catalyst for this progress.

"The One Game, One Community weeks of action illustrates this perfectly, as clubs, along with players and fans, combine to send out the strongest message that football is our game, and there to be enjoyed by everyone."

The unified support of the campaign will be replicated across the continent too as the Football Against Racism in Europe (FARE) network will ensure Champions League and Europa League fixtures communicate the message that discrimination and intimidation will not be tolerated within the game.

The One Game, One Community weeks of action is backed by football's governing bodies and is the largest sporting initiative of its kind worldwide.
