Samba: We care about results

Chris Samba has hit out at the view that Queens Park Rangers' signings are only at the club for the money.

• Blog: Looking to Fulham

Samba, 29, arrived at Loftus Road in January from Anzhi Makhachkala for a fee of £12.5 million and is believed to be on £100,000-a-week wages.

QPR chairman Tony Fernandes has dug deep into his pockets in an attempt to make the club a competitive side in the Premier League. Samba was joined by Loic Remy in the winter transfer window for £8 million, while a vast number of other players have also been brought in, either in January or last summer.

Yet despite the huge influx of signings, the west London side have struggled all season and are rooted to the bottom of the table, leading many to suggest that the new boys are more concerned about their pay packets than results on the pitch.

Samba, however, told the Daily Mirror: "I have to defend this. Nobody put a knife at the throat of anybody at QPR to come and discuss contracts. They wanted to extend my contract for another year at Anzhi. I could have earned more there. But I wanted to come back to England. The club believes in the players that have been brought here. They believe they are the right players for the club.

"What would people have said if the owner didn't try anything? If he didn't spend any money? They would have said that he didn't care. But he did what he believed was right. The owner really is a passionate man. He has shown a fighting spirit for the club by doing all the business he could have done to improve the team.

"Us players have come in to try and prove him right. Remy, [Jermaine] Jenas and [Andros] Townsend have been fantastic. We all know what staying in the Premier League means to the fans. But people still think that our attitude is, 'Whether we win or lose, we get paid'. They are wrong."

Samba added: "If I lose a game, I might get paid but I go home and it affects me. I am not doing anything. I am not going to restaurants. I am not going out at all. I'm not the nicest person when we lose. That's how it affects your life. Ask any player at any club, and they will tell you the same."
