Former QPR midfielder Lee Cook has criticised Ji-Sung Park, saying the South Korea star only joined the R’s for the money.
Former Manchester United ace Park was one of 12 new faces to arrive at Loftus Road during the summer.
But things have not got to plan for Mark Hughes’ side, who lie bottom of the Premier League table after seven games.
And Cook, now at Leyton Orient, thinks Park isn’t working hard enough for the team.
He told The Sun: “Every time I saw Park at United, he was a workhorse.
“For me, he doesn’t seem to be working as hard as he did there.
“People I know think a few of them are there for a pay-day.
“At halfway through the season, you will be able to tell whether this is true or not.”
