Moses Odubajo has revealed that he is looking forward to getting back to enjoying this beautiful game we call football once again after joining Queens Park Rangers.
QPR on Friday announced the signing of Odubajo on a one-year deal. The full-back joined from Sheffield Wednesday after training with the team throughout pre-season.
Odubajo had, meanwhile, scored a superb goal in their 4-2 friendly victory against Manchester United last weekend which probably led to QPR deciding to snap him up.
The wingback has thus joined QPR, putting pen to paper on a one-year deal and the SkyBet Championship club-side also has a further year’s option on the 28-year-old.
Odubajo who had been out of contract after leaving Wednesday at the end of the 2020/21 soccer season played under Rs boss, Mark Warburton previously with Brentford.
He looks forward to life in W12, telling www.qpr.co.uk: “I have got to know the lads really well and it’s a manager who I have played with before, so the move just felt right.
“The manager knows what I can do and he knows what I am capable of.” Odubajo joined Hull City in 2015/16 and was a regular as they won promotion to the Premier League via the playoffs.
Ahead of his debut season in the top flight, Odubajo suffered a serious knee injury which resulted in him missing two years of football. He has since recovered, though.
And he featured for Brentford and Wednesday over the past three years prior to this move. Now, he is determined to get back to his very best wearing the blue and white hoops.
“I said to myself over the summer that this was the year that I wanted to get back out there and do the things I know I can do, week in week out,” Odubajo explained.
“I have been given the chance here by a manager I know really well to join a good team and hopefully add some quality.
“I have moved on from those injuries now and the body is feeling the best it has ever felt. I am just looking forward to getting back to enjoying this beautiful game we call football!”
