Rabat – Queens Park Rangers owner Tony Fernandes has told the London Evening Standard that Moroccan international Adel Taarabt has “the attributes to become a Premiere League star.”
“I think Adel will be a surprise for many this season. He’s focused and wants to stay at QPR. He can turn games around in a few minutes, so it’s important to have him,” said the 50-year-old Malaysian boss of Air Asia.
“People have forgotten him a little bit but he can do extraordinary things. At AC Milan last season he was quite special,” he added.
QPR loaned the Moroccan midfielder last season to Fulham and AC Milan with whom he was hoping to stay on a permanent basis but the Italian side refused to meet QPR’s £6 million price tag for the player.
Fernandes is reportedly planning to employ a nutritionist to improve Taarabt’s diet.
“Adel has to get his head right. He saw my trainer about nutrition and he gave me a very good report on Adel. We are going to get a special nutritionist for him because he is like me. He eats all the wrong things at the wrong time.”
