Samba joined Rangers last month in a £12.5million deal from ambitious Russian club Anzhi Makhachkala as Harry Redknapp looked to shore up his defence.

The former Blackburn Rovers man insists the main reason to swap Anzhi for Loftus Road was to be closer to his family in England and his desire to move was not driven by financial gain.

Reflecting on his departure from Anzhi, Samba told The Independent: "The owner is investing so much into this club, it's going places and you'd have to be crazy to leave.

"I had three years left there on a big salary. Obviously, going to QPR is not to make more money. Not at all. All the talk about money is just nonsense.

"I missed my family and wanted to be back with my boys. All the money in the world cannot make you the happiest man.

"I think for your life to be complete you need to have two sides. If you can enjoy your football and have your loved ones close with you - that's all you want."

e doesn't need a caoch. He needs a bus. A bloody big one, that he can park across the goal line. And when he gets one, he can do us a favour and let us know where we can buy one from as well.
