MEDIA VIEW ON EDUARDO VARGAS MOVE TO QPR

What kind of player have QPR signed in Eduardo Vargas?

I think a very good player. He's very quick, with good technique. The only problem he had in Italy was being utilised in his best position. I think he is best as an out-and-out striker. He should play through the middle, because he can always see the possibility to score goals.

 

What are his biggest strengths?

His attacking qualities are his strengths. Technically he is very good. He dribbles with the ball very well. He's strong for someone so small. He is difficult to get the ball off. I know he wanted this move to QPR. He wanted them ahead of Sunderland - Gus Poyet called him a lot. But he wanted to be with (Mauricio) Isla at QPR. Maybe the will he has to play for Rangers will end up being his biggest strength. Him being here is fantastic news for QPR.

 

How do you think he will adapt to the English game?

I think this is the big test for Edu. He did very well in Spain and Brazil, where maybe the defending isn't so strong. In Italy, and now in England, the defenders are strong and aggressive. If he wants to become a very, very good player - at club and international level - he has to pass this exam.

 

His arrival at Loftus Road is something of a coup, were you surprised when the news first broke, especially on the back of his impressive World Cup displays for Chile?

I'm surprised, because I expected Premier League clubs to come in for him a few years ago. This time around, I thought maybe Spain or Portugal - where Benfica, Porto and Sporting Lisbon all wanted him - would be his next move. However, QPR is in my heart and I truly believe he will be a very good player for Rangers.
