‘I really don’t want to leave’ – QPR star says he’s committed to club despite Premier League ambitions

Yoann Barbet has spoken of his ambition to play in the Premier League – but says he is committed to QPR.

Barbet signed a three-year contract with the R’s last summer after leaving west London neighbours Brentford.

The season was suspended because of the coronavirus crisis as Rangers were on a good run – they had moved to within six points of the play-off places.

That run coincided with Barbet’s return to the side after more than three months on the sidelines with a calf injury.

Rangers have been vulnerable at the back for much of the campaign but the improvement after he was recalled to the team was stark.

And the French defender believes they are capable of making the play-offs if the season is resumed.

“I’m going to do everything to go to the Premier League, and why not with QPR. It would be even better to go up with them,” Barbet told French outlet Formation Girondins, as reported by Sport Witness.

“I really don’t want to leave here, I’m very happy, I have the manager’s trust, the club’s.

“I signed for three years, not to leave after just one. I hope we can continue the season and why not even make the play-offs!”
