QPR stopper happy to stay at Loftus Rd

Rob GreenQPR’s ex-England goalkeeper Robert Green says he is content to fight for his place next season and stay with the relegated club.

The 33-year-old lost his number one spot to Julio Cesar during the last campaign but the Brazilian international is expected to be one of many who will move on this summer.

Green is philosophical about his own future and says he will be happy to play for the club next season and he will be doing his utmost for the side.

“I see my future wherever I am told it is really,” he told the club’s official site.

“Life of a keeper, particularly an English one, is very different to an outfield player where you get 25 squad places with rotation and maybe European games if you are at one of the bigger clubs.

“You get the need for a lot of players whereas with a keeper there are not many teams where you have two first choice keepers – here is one of them.
“You see people saying it is up to us if we stay or go but sometimes it really isn’t.”

He added: “If I get told I am here next season then I am here next season and I will do my utmost for the team. If I get told I am here next season and I am on the bench then that is my life and you have got to take it how it is.

“That is something I have learned from this season as much as anything that it is not all laid for you on a red carpet.”
