New signing Amos watched on as the QPR in the Community Trust coaches put the kids through their paces, later on the Tottenham loanee was centre of attention as he gave an insight into what it takes to become a professional footballer.
Speaking to www.qpr.co.uk Amos explained: “This is something which I didn’t have the opportunity to do when I was younger, but I would’ve loved the chance to meet other younger players, like these do. After a hard days training from these young kids, seeing a professional player must help get your energy up and encourage you to work harder.
He added “When you became a professional footballer, you have a responsibility for the children which look up to you and see you as a role model. When these kids come to QPR games and watch me play then I would like put on a good show for them and hopefully one day they might say they want to be like me.
He shared his pride of playing for a club like QPR and the impact the Trust has on the local community, by stating: “It was so nice to see so many QPR shirts here today, when I signed for this club I knew they had a strong fan base, but the passion from these kids today shows the stature of the club and how much it means to the local community”.
