QPR defender Christopher Sambas has defended the amount the club are paying him for his services according to The Daily Mail.

The centre-back has been pointed to as a shining example of the club’s willingness to throw around money.

Samba joined the club from wealthy Russian side Anzhi Makhachkala with boss Harry Redknapp hopeful that the player’s defensive abilities could help the club avoid relegation to the Championship.

That now looks unlikely with QPR firmly rooted to the bottom of the Premier League. They are seven points clear from safety and with just eight games left to play, the club require a miracle to avoid Championship football next season.

That has seen the criticism of the club’s spending resurface as many have begun to question how the club will pay their well rewarded stars without a Premier League income.

But club owner Tony Fernandes has insisted the club will be able to survive should they suffer relegation.

Samba has now also moved to defend his £100,000 a week wages by insisting that nobody was forced into bringing him to the club.

Samba has pointed out that Anzhi offered him a better deal to stay in Russia but the centre-back was keen to return to English football.
