QPR defender praises club’s fans

QPR centre back Anton Ferdinand has come out to praise the support he received from the club’s fans during their recent high profile clash with Chelsea at Loftus Road.

Last month’s game was the first time Ferdinand had encountered John Terry after the Chelsea captain was cleared of racially abusing the defender, and he clearly appreciated the backing from the supporters.

“I couldn’t have got through the day without them,” he told the QPR Official Website.

The defender also went onto mention on the club’s website how it is been a difficult time for him and he wanted to thank the fans from the “bottom of his heart” for the all the encouragement he has been given.

Next up for QPR is a trip to the Hawthorns to face West Bromwich Albion on Saturday, where they will be looking to get back to winning ways, after a disappointing defeat to West Ham on Monday night.
