Esteban has no interest in leaving QPR as he targets Premier League survival...

ESTEBAN GRANERO says he is completely focused on playing his part to help QPR stay in the top flight between now and the end of the season.

With the R’s seven points adrift of safety with 11 matches remaining, speculation is growing regarding where some of the squad will be plying their trade next term.

Granero says he will be with QPR. In the Premier League.

“I am not the type of player who wants to play for many teams and move every transfer window,” Granero said. 

“I like to get involved with the club, with the team, with everything. I have only played for two teams (before QPR) in my career, one is the team of my life, Real Madrid, and one is Getafe, who I was with on loan.

“I am not thinking about the future. In the summer I signed a four-year contract because I wanted to spend four years here. And I still want to spend four years here. 

“I do not want to be changing teams all the time. I am happy at QPR. This is a good club for me.

“I feel now this club forms part of me and I am just thinking about playing these games and trying to get out of the relegation zone. Then we can face a new season with new opportunities and try to start better from the beginning to make sure it is a better season.”

Since swapping Madrid for London, Granero has settled in quickly to his new surroundings. But his enjoyment has been greatly tempered by the difficult season the R’s are enduring.

“Apart from the results, everything is perfect!” he said. “But when you are bottom of the league it is hard to relax and be happy because you are suffering for the club, for the supporters, and for yourself. 

“We still have the chance to get out of this situation and if we manage this, I will remember this as a great season. 

“We have some very difficult games ahead and this is a big challenge for us. We have to be ready for it.”
