Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

QPR boss Mark Hughes reck­ons

he will see the best from Adel Taarabt – by get­ting in

his ear ev­ery day. Taarabt strug­gled un­der boss Neil for mer Hoops W arnock but stunned team-mates

with his workrate dur­ing the r ecent

mid-sea­son train­ing camp in Por­tu­gal. Hughes said: “I un­der­stand his

abil­i­ties. If we can get him play­ing well con­sis­tently

and work­ing har d for the team he will en­joy his foot­ball

and get mor e op­por­tu­ni­ties. “Ev­ery player gets ad­vice on a daily

ba­sis and Adel, from what I’ve seen, craves that

in­ter­ac­tion. That’s what he’s get­ting from us and he

is re­spond­ing.” Mali mid­fielder Samba Di­akite also

impr essed in the Algar ve when he ar­rived fol­low­ing

the African Cup of Na­tions. Hughes added: “He’s ev­ery­thing

I thought he was. It may take time to ad­just to the

Premier League but given his ath­leti­cism and abil­ity

to get ar ound the park and around play­ers, I think

he will be fine.”
