Samba: Get over it and support the team
Queens Park Rangers defender Christopher Samba has told the club's fans that his salary has "nothing to do with any of you" in the wake of his side's 3-2 defeat at Fulham on Monday night.
Samba, 29, was signed by QPR during the January transfer window from Anzhi Makhachkala for around £12 million in a bid to fortify the team's backline as they look to preserve their Premier League status.
But the centre-back has struggled to halt QPR's poor form, as this week's loss at Craven Cottage left Harry Redknapp's side seven points adrift of safety.
After the match against their est London counterparts, Samba wrote on his official Twitter account that he was sorry for his own display, after he was culpable for Fulham's first two goals.
"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," Samba said. "Wish every one a safe travel home good nite god bless speak 2mo."
The Congo international then went on to express his frustation at question marks over his earnings, instead urging the QPR faithful to "get over it and support the team".
He said: "Before I go tonight I just wanna say I see alot of you talk about I shouldn't say sorry,well when I'm wrong I'm wrong I hold my hands up.
"Then 2nd of all to all you keep talking about 100 k performance,tell me what is a 100k performance?we as players go out and give our all.
"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.
"U all moan about players and wages,but we don't just entertain u we entertain millions around the world,with out us what would u tweet about.
"We play this sport as players that we love but also is a job,we keep millions happy on a sat,we get payed to entertain u all.
"Just some most then others hope u understand,fed up with the money tweets get over it and support the team,good nite."
