'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Jim - Patience For Faurlín

Queens Park Rangers boss Jim Magilton has called for supporters to be patient with Alejandro Faurlín as he finds his feet in English football.

The Argentinean summer signing from Instituto de Cordoba came through 85 minutes against Bristol City and looked impressive against the Robins.

The central midfielder sat deep and picked passes to precision while never shirking a challenge with City new-boy Paul Hartley.

Despite a useful showing Magilton insists there is more to come from the new signing after a learning curve at Ashton Gate.

Jim told QPR.co.uk: 'It was a baptism of fire for Alejandro at Bristol on Tuesday night.

'It was a very hard learning curve for him in the first 45 minutes, but he coped well.

'And credit to the lad, he got on the ball regularly in the second half and showed glimpses of what a fine player he is.

'He passed the ball well and in the manner we want him to.'


While some supporters have laughable compared him to a former Argentinean Emmanuel Ledesma, Faurlín takes up a far more combative role in the centre of the field, giving far less emphasis on attacking play than the former Genoa loanee.

Faurlín`s debut was delayed owing to an injury during pre-season. The knock to his thigh caused him to miss the last few friendlies, with his first appearance in a Rangers jersey coming at Ashton Gate.

Jim thinks that time is required before the fans get to see the best of the £3.5m signing as he continues to bed into a different style of play in England.

'He's been out for a long time and missed a lot of pre-season, so it's a matter of waiting for him to catch up on his match fitness," said Jim.

'He lasted longer than we thought we would, but he needs game time in his legs.

'I think he's a very, very good player and will prove to be a decent acquisition for the Football Club.'


Faurlín looks set to drop to the bench against Nottingham Forest at the weekend as Jim rotates his squad once more.
