It seems as though the short-term future of QPR youngster Faysal Bettache could lie away from Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.
He has found regular minutes hard to come by though, and could be tempted by a short-term move elsewhere, as he looks to further his development in senior football.
Speaking in a recent post-match press conference (quotes sourced from West London Sport), QPR boss Mark Warburton issued his thoughts on Bettache, and felt as though he could benefit from a similar-type loan to that of what Ilias Chair had with Stevenage earlier in his career.
“He’s a young boy that’s working hard for an opportunity. They’re the type of games where you learn so much. You can’t replicate that in training.
“He’s worked hard, young Faysal. He probably does need to go out just to play 20-odd games and keep developing, like Ilias did at Stevenage for example – that type of loan.
“But you’ve got to trust them. He came on there and did a really good job for us.”
QPR are set to return to action on Saturday, when they take on relegation-threatened Rotherham United, in what could potentially be a tricky test for Mark Warburton’s team.
Were these former QPR players left or right footed?
This seems as though it would be the right move for all parties involved.
Bettache isn’t likely to get regular game time in the QPR first-team anytime soon, and it would make sense for the club to find a loan move for the youngster this season.
If he can impress out on loan, then I really wouldn’t be surprised if Bettache returns to the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium to mount a serious challenge for a regular starting spot in Mark Warburton’s side.
It’s good to hear the QPR boss speaking highly of Bettache, as I think he’s a player that could add something to their team in future seasons.
