WHILE still shocked by our 5-0 opening-day defeat to Swansea last weekend, Djibril Cisse has called upon his team-mates to show a different side to them this Saturday when the R’s take on Norwich at Carrow
Rangers were left stunned by the nature of the loss to Michael Laudrup’s Swans in front of a packed Loftus Road.
“We played well in the first 15 or 20 minutes but after they scored their first goal it became difficult for us,” Cisse told www.qpr.co.uk.
“Our dressing room was very sad after the game but we have to forget about this now. It is done. We have to start our season on Saturday against Norwich.
“We must show that it was just a mistake and that accidents like this can happen. I am sure that we will show a different face on Saturday.
“We have to win there because to start the season with two defeats is not good.”
Following the recent acquisition of Jose Bosingwa, Rangers now boast three Champions League winners in their ranks, alongside Cisse and Ji-Sung Park.
And the Frenchman says this fact demonstrates the direction the club is heading in.
“This says a lot,” he added. “It shows we are trying to build a really strong team with players who have experience of big competitions.
“I am proud to be one of them and bring something to the team that can help other players.”
For now, however, the colourful frontman insists QPR must be patient in their approach, believing Premier League survival should be the primary objective once again this term.
“My opinion is that our target should be to stay in the division first,” he said. “For now we must do everything we can to be safe. Then we can talk about other targets.”
