QPR defender Chris Samba took to Twitter last night to apologise for his performance during his side's 3-2 defeat at Fulham.

However, the former Blackburn Rovers star was met with racist abuse and questions over his pay-packet.

The defender, who is on £100k-a-week at the Premier League strugglers, gave away an early penalty which Dimitar Berbatov converted and then later on gave away the ball on the edge of his own area, which then again resulted in a Berbatov goal.

QPR went on to lose the game 3-2, which sees them seven points off safety with just seven games left to play.

After the game, manager Harry Redknapp said the goals conceded were the worst he's seen in his managerial career and Samba quickly took to Twitter to apologise to the fans. 

The defender tweeted: "I'm really sorry I let the side down,really upset with my 1st half performance I can't say sorry enough to all the supporters,won't give up."

After that tweet, things started to turn sour on Samba and a lot of the supporters were not willing to accept his apology and it is reported that Samba himself was called a 'negro' by certain fans.

Many others brought up his salary and questioned whether he was worth it or not. After receiving the tweets from the fans, he once again tweeted and explained his feelings about racism and his own salary.

He later said: "We do are best every week,what I get payed has nothing to do with any of you,as for my price tag I didn't put a price on my head,grow up pls.

"Just some most then others hope u understand,fed up with the money tweets get over it and support the team,good nite."

The defender then tweeted earlier this morning about the racist comments aimed towards him, as he said: "As for the racist abuse I receive last nite I did not deserve at all,called it a early day today to be called a negro for a game of football.

"2013 kick racism out of football,retweet if you are against it thank you,no matter what race sex or nationality STOP RACISM OUT OF FOOTBALL."
