Hughes: Green still has a future at QPR

The Rs manager has insisted that despite the arrival of Julio Cesar, the former West Ham goalkeeper still has a future at Loftus Road
Mark Hughes has insisted that although QPR signed Julio Cesar in the summer window, Robert Green still has a future at the club.

The former England international left West Ham at the end of last season to join Hughes' side, only for the five time Serie A and one time Champions League winner Julio Cesar, to arrive at the London club and usurp Green for the No. 1 spot.

Despite starting games against Chelsea, Reading and Tottenham, Hughes insists Green can still put pressure on the Brazilian goalkeeper.

And although reports suggested the west London outfit would be prepared to sanction the release of Green for nothing, Hughes told reporters: “Does Rob have a future here? Absolutely.

“I think Cesar has been exceptional. He acquitted himself really well again in the game against Reading last week. He saved a penalty and he’s in my thinking for West Ham, certainly.”

“Rob is working hard in training, trying to put pressure on Julio and get back in.

“He certainly has the capability to do that. But at the moment it’s difficult for him.

“We didn’t expect this situation.”
