Queens Park Rangers forward Conor Washington has lavished praise on Ian Holloway, claiming that the experienced boss helped him out of a career low point, according to The Daily Mail.
Conor Washington had struggled for form since moving from Peterborough to Queens Park Rangers but this was not helped by the fact that former boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink played him as a winger, rather than his preferred role as a central striker.
The Northern Ireland has enjoyed a new lease of life since Ian Holloway has come in and he has praised the former Blackpool and Crystal Palace manager for helping him through the toughest stage of his career to date.
Under Hasselbaink, the 24-year-old only managed a single goal in ten months of football but he has hit the net a further six times since Holloway has taken over.
“Within the year, I’ve gone from the highest point to the lowest point back to where I am now.
“It’s mad how quickly things can change and strange how much of an effect it had on me.”
Washington further explained that Holloway had taken him aside on one of his first days, told him that he was still a good player but he was lacking confidence and compiled a ten minute video of all the goals he had scored in his career.
QPR fans – what do you make of this? Does this show the type of man manager that Holloway is? How good has Washington been since Holloway’s arrival? Let us know in the comments below…
