Harry fuming over Bosingwa

Queens Park Rangers boss Harry Redknapp says the club’s senior

players are firmly behind his decision to drop Jose Bosingwa.

The Portuguese full-back infuriated Redknapp after it transpired

that he refused to take his place on the substitutes’ bench for

their game at home to Fulham earlier this month and he was

subsequently left out of the match at Newcastle.

Redknapp says that the squad is firmly behind the stance he has

taken with Bosingwa.

“The good lads have not got a problem with it,” he said.

“The good lads would be sick. The Ryan Nelsens and Clint Hills

and all them good lads all thought it was a disgrace.

“That’s the first time it’s ever happened to me as a manager and

I’ve managed some pretty temperamental players. I’ve never known

anyone to do that. It was something new to me and not something I

like.”

Bosingwa has again been left out of QPR’s squad for their game

with West Brom on Boxing Day and Redknapp admits it will be tough

for him to get back in.

“His future here depends on his attitude really. We’ll have to

wait and see what happens,” he added.

“When you are down you need help. When you are playing Fulham at

home you need help. We were desperate as we hadn’t won a game all

year.

“You need everybody to be with you and say ‘Okay let’s get on

with it’, not ‘I’m not happy to sit on the bench, let’s talk about

it on Monday’. You don’t go home, do you?

“The fans pay their money and deserve to know the truth. They

don’t expect one of their players not to want to sit on the

bench.”
