Every Time I read MBIA blivious:
QPR defender Stephane Mbia claims manager Mark Hughes did not even know *whether he was worth signing.
Mbia, sold by *Marseille for £5million in August, told French newspaper L’Equipe: “The manager knew my name and had seen me in the Champions League, but did not really know whether I was good or not.”
Mbia – sent off yesterday for kicking out against Arsenal’s Thomas *Vermaelen – admitted QPR were just as big a mystery for him: “I thought they were a Scottish club. Marseille needed the money. So I thought why not if it is for their good and mine, but I would never have thought of coming here.”
On QPR’s tactics, Mbia said: “There is only *playing and very little tactics. We don’t *really train in the week, we have rest days, but we haven’t the right to mess up on match days.”
And Mbia has had problems on the pitch before his sending off at the *Emirates. He said: “Against West Ham, I went to see the referee to tell him Andy Carroll kept elbowing me. The ref *replied: ‘Welcome to England’.”
