QPR winger Shaun Wright-Phillips is loving life at Loftus Road after making an impressive start to life with his new club.

The former Manchester City star is once again being mentioned alongside England, with Fabio Capello in west London yesterday to watch the player in the 1-1 draw against Aston Villa, according to reports.

Whilst not all the results have gone the way the 29-year-old would have wanted since his deadline day move, Wright-Phillips admits it's great just to be playing first team football once again after spells on the sidelines with both the Citizens and Chelsea before that.

"I am loving it to be honest. I go home happy and I look forward to training now on Tuesday and the game again. You just know how to prepare yourself," he said post-match.

"It's not so much frustrating, its just that if you don't know when you are going to play, how do you focus on a game? That's part of football, though, and if you are going to be at a big club you have to deal with it.

"I had it at Chelsea and Man City and you know it's not about yourself, it's a team game. If you are hurting inside, you can't really show it because you want the team to do well because that's part of football.

"I was hurting inside because I am a footballer and I want to play but that's just the way it goes sometimes.

Wright-Phillips was one of a number of summer transfer additions at the club, with Joey Barton, Anton Ferdinand and Jay Bothroyd three additional high-profile acquisitions under Neil Warnock.


The arrival of new owner Tony Fernandes gave the club a further boost in the later stages of August, and SWP believes the side can continue to improve further as they spend more time together on the training ground.

"We have played three games and I thought we gelled quite well for a team that has just come together," the player continued.

"But obviously there is still a lot to be done and still stuff we are going to work on at the training ground."
