QPR boss: I didn’t want to sell Taarabt when I was at Spurs
QPR manager Harry Redknapp is delighted to be working with Adel Taarabt again at Loftus Road.
The 65-year-old sold the Moroccan while at Tottenham but admitted that he was reluctant to do so and it was only the form of Luka Modric and Gareth Bale that forced his hand.
“I sold him,” he said. “I didn’t want to let him go.
“I thought he had great ability. It was difficult for him – he had Modric, Bale and god knows who keeping him out of the team.
“It was difficult for Adel. I felt he had the ability to become a top player. There is no doubting his ability.
