Former QPR player Steve Wicks has hit out at Bobby Zamora for admitting he doesn’t like football while his club are struggling in the Premier League.
The striker, on several occasions, has revealed he doesn’t watch the sport outside of his time playing for the Super Hoops.
But Wicks, who played nearly 200 times for the troubled west London outfit, believes that Zamora should be concentrating on the battle to avoid relegation.
“Players don’t help themselves these days,” he told the Weekend Sports Breakfast. “I know Bobby really well. My son used to play with him at Brighton and he’s a great kid, but to come out and say that when QPR are in this situation, I just find it brainless.
”And it frustrates me really because the QPR fans, all they want to see is their team roll up their sleeves and battle, and they can do it.”
And the former defender insists that Mark Hughes' charges need to show a bit of fight if they are going to remain in the Premier League next season.
He added: “When QPR have the ball they can play some really lovely football but the problem with them at the moment is when they don’t have the ball.
“Yesterday in the second half there were people strolling, losing the ball and strolling back and that’s not a good sign.
“It’s going to take people to roll up their sleeves, get together and have a battle, a good old fashion battle up [for them to survive].
“At the moment it’s almost like [they think], ‘oh, we’re too good to go down’, and I don’t think any team can say that.”
