Hughes hopes to harness Taarabt

Published Add your comment

QPR manager Mark Hughes feels Adel Taarabt can channel his "free spirit" to become a major player in the Barclays Premier League.

The 22-year-old Moroccan was instrumental in helping QPR to win the npower Championship last year, but this season the former Tottenham midfielder endured a difficult relationship with ex-manager Neil Warnock and was linked with a big-money move to France.

However, Hughes feels Taarabt can make it to the top, and said: "Adel has been a free spirit in the past, just played off the cuff, which is fine and you can affect games at a lower level, but at Premier League level you have to have discipline to your play, understand the game and be involved totally from the first minute to the last minute."
