QPR star reveals the key to Taarabt’s resurgence
Onuoha hails team-mate’s work ethic
Nedum Onuoha believes Adel Taarabt’s recent upturn in form is down to one thing – hard work.
Taarabt hit the winner against Tottenham on Saturday to fire Rangers three points clear of the drop zone, his second goal of the season after he also found the net against Arsenal last month.
And Rs defender Onuoha revealed that the temperamental Moroccan has had no option but to up his game on the training pitch, as strict disciplinarian Mark Hughes stamps his authority.
“When he’s playing well he can be the difference because not every team up and down the country has a player like that who can make the difference,” said Onuoha.
“His work ethic is really good now as well, so while he has that and is scoring goals he’ll do well.
“He doesn’t really have a choice anymore, that’s probably the difference.
