QPR confirm signing of former Chelsea defender Bosingwa

QPR have clinched the signing of Jose Bosingwa on a three-year contract following the player’s release from Chelsea.

In what has been an extremely busy transfer window so far for the club, the right-back becomes manager Mark Hughes’ eighth signing of the summer.

And Boswinga, who brings a wealth of experience to Loftus Road after four years at Chelsea, spoke of his delight at extending his stay in the Premier League upon confirmation of the deal.

“I’m really pleased to be here. I had the pick of many clubs, but the project here excites me greatly,” Bosingwa told the club’s official website.

“I spoke yesterday with the manager and owner and they showed me what they want for the future of the club.

“I played for Chelsea for four years and I love Premier League football and the supporters. It is fantastic for me to stay in England. I’m happy and all of my family are happy, and that is most important.

“This is maybe the most important challenge of my career. I want to help my team-mates and the team with my experience.

“Now I am a QPR player, I will give my best – for the team and for the supporters.

“All together, we will fight for the club. We need time. We start now and in one, two or three years we can win something. We have to have passion and I think the results will come.”

Following the likes of Andy Johnson, Robert Green and Park Ji-Sung arriving club, Hughes was excited about the prospect of the new season ahead and how much more experienced his squad is now when compared to last term.

Hughes added: “I am delighted to bring a player of his undoubted quality to the club. He has got plenty of pace, great technical ability and all the attributes you need to be a top player.

“Jose has a lot of versatility which is something I like my players to have. He can operate right across the back and can also play the holding role in midfield.

“He’s another Champions League winner, the third in the squad now with Ji-Sung Park and Djibril Cisse, and will add invaluable experience to the group.

“His experience is really important to us. He understands the Premier League and he understands what it takes to win games. He has got a winning mentality and that is what I want to have around the place.”
