Exclusive - Taarabt: 'God has brought Neil Warnock to me'

Adel Taarabt claims that Neil Warnock is a gift from God.
The QPR playmaker was named Championship Player of the Year at the Football League Awards on Sunday after an outstanding season.
The Moroccan has weighed in with 15 goals and 15 assists to send the Hoops within touching distance of the Premier League.
And he has put that fine form down to his manager, telling talkSPORT: "God has brought Neil Warnock to me. We have a fantastic relationship as I’m a very difficult guy to control and he can deal with me. I have not just found a home, I’ve found a family and to have a manager like this is fantastic.
“I’m a big character and want to be the best and all the tricks I try, I want them to come off. If I play badly I go home upset but people confuse the person and the footballer, I’m not a bad guy.”
Warnock’s men have one foot in the Premier League and Taarabt can’t wait to strut his stuff on the big stage.
“We have 8 more games and 4 wins will get us promoted but we want to win the league," added the 21-year-old. "He (Warnock) told me that he wants to take me to the Premier League. Before there was only Ronaldo here and the fans want to see entertainment.”

Warnock: Adel's our Talisman

Neil Warnock told that he was delighted to see his "talisman" named npower Championship Player of the Year last night at a glitzy London bash.

Taarabt picked up the gong ahead of Norwich's Grant Holt and Swansea's Scott Sinclair, who were also short-listed for the award, which was voted for by supporters across the country.

Adel Taarabt Queens Park Rangers FC

Barely a week in the Championship seems to pass without Adel Taarabt causing a stir. The 21-year-old has been the outstanding player in a Queens Park Rangersteam whose dominance has been such that they need only 15 points from eight games to return to thePremier League next season.


Adel Taarabt has tonight (Sunday) been crowned npower Championship Player of the Year.
The Rangers skipper scooped the prestigious award ahead of Norwich City front-man Grant Holt and Swansea's Scott Sinclair at a gala evening at The Brewery, London, this evening.
Taarabt has been in quite outstanding form for the R's so far this season, producing one superlative performance after another, as Neil Warnock's men continue their all-out assault on the summit of the second tier.
'Tarbs' - as he's been dubbed by Warnock - has 15 goals and 15 assists to his name so far this season.
The 'Taarabt's too good for you' chant has never been more relevant than tonight.
Congratulations Adel!
