QPR star: We can turn things around despite nightmare start
20:38 03 October 2012
QPR defender Anton Ferdinand believes that his side can turn things around after their nightmare start to the Premier League season.
The R’s have picked up just two points and sit bottom of the league after their 2-1 defeat to West Ham on Monday.
“We have got an impressive squad and I’m sure if we keep playing as we have been in recent weeks, we will turn things around,” Ferdinand told the club’s official website.
“It has to turn at some point and let’s hope it’s sooner rather than later.”
Ferdinand paid tribute to the R’s fans for their support throughout the John Terry racism controversy – the Chelsea defender was banned for four games and fined £220,000 for his actions, subject to appeal.
“The fans were great and I want to thank them from the bottom of my heart,” the 27-year-old said.
“They gave me fantastic support and I couldn’t have got through the day without them. They kept me going for the full 90 minutes.
“It has been a difficult period for me but the fans have been special, they have been very good to me.
“The club on the whole, the lads and all the fans have given me incredible support. The backing I’ve been given is something I will never forget.
“I just want to concentrate on football now and look forward to climbing up that table.”
