Green shocked by Cesar signing

Published 1 Comments

QPR goalkeeper Rob Green "would have thought twice" about moving to Loftus Road in the summer had he known beforehand he would be competing with Brazil international Julio Cesar for the number one jersey.

The 32-year-old England stopper made the switch from West Ham in July having helped the Hammers win promotion back to the Barclays Premier League. However, QPR's decision to sign Brazilian Cesar from Inter Milan a month later came as a huge shock to Green, who soon found himself playing a bit part under manager Mark Hughes.

"I came to QPR looking for a new challenge after six years at West Ham, a wonderful time capped off by promotion at Wembley," Green told the Mail on Sunday. "Kevin Hitchcock, the goalkeeping coach at QPR, is an old mate and I came to work for him on the understanding that I was first choice."
