Alejandro Faurlin: Opted to join QPR rather than wait on a deal at Inter Milan
Alejandro Faurlin believes he made the right decision taking a gamble on Queens Park Rangers rather than chasing the dream at Inter Milan.
The Argentine midfielder made his way to Loftus Road in July 2009, turning his back on the possibility of a move to Serie A in the process.
The 25-year-old has enjoyed his time in England, despite finding himself at the centre of a transfer storm at one stage, and helped QPR win promotion back into the Premier League last term.
He feels settled in London and has no regrets at having put career stability ahead of a shot at the UEFA Champions League in Italy.
"QPR offered me three years of contract," Faurlin told The Independent.
"That meant a lot. It meant security for me and my family.
"Inter were only offering one, and it was only ever a possibility.
"Some people would make a quick decision at the mention of a big name. Not me."
He added: "If you come for the right reasons, if you make a choice and you are certain you are right, you will not regret it tomorrow.
"The way my career has gone has taught me to be calm."
Faurlin has encountered a number of larger than life characters in the QPR dressing room, but he is happy to be playing his part in an ever-evolving squad.
He said: "Joey Barton is funny, but I don't always understand him.
"He's the sort of character it is good to have around. The manager (Neil Warnock) too.
"I like it here. I feel happy here."
