Queens Park Rangers defender Chris Samba has demanded that supporters “get over” the subject of his wages after being criticised for his display against Fulham on Monday evening, says BBC
The Congolese international endured an error-laden performance in QPR’s 3-2 defeat to the Cottagers and was at fault for two goals, conceding a penalty for Martin Jol’s men’s first before giving the ball away to Dimitar Berbatov for a second.
But the 29-year-old has slammed fans for commenting on his bumper wage packet – rumoured to be worth around £100,000 a week.
Samba tweeted: “Fed up with the money tweets, get over it.
“Tell me what is a £100k performance? See everyone talking about mistakes, like footballers cannot have an off day on the pitch. We are human like all of you. Grow up some of you, please.”
Samba signed for Harry Redknapp’s side from Anzhi Makhachkala in January for £12.5m as QPR looked to launch an unlikely bid at Premier League survival.
But Samba’s presence has not had the desired effect, as the R’s sit 19th in the table – seven points from safety with just seven matches remaining.
