Ethan Laird has joined QPR on loan from Manchester United. Rangers announced: “The 21-year-old defender will stay at Loftus Road for the duration of the 2022/23 campaign.”
“It feels brilliant and I am delighted to get it over the line,” Ethan said.
“You want love and care,” he admitted. “Winning changing rooms need to have a real care for the players and I feel like on the pitch you will get the best from your players if they know they are going to be cared for.
“Another thing I look for is creativity – and it is in abundance here!”
Laird has a reputation as an attack-minded fullback – and that’s something he is keen to enhance during his time in west London.
“I like to play with confidence and be exciting, and I feel I have the freedom to do that here,” Ethan Laird said.
“Sometimes you don’t want to come out of your comfort zone. But you only become your best self when you do,” he said.
“You only find out what you are really like when you play football. Coming up against 6’5 players, coming up against beasts, you find ways to adapt. And I feel like I have adapted well wherever I have gone and I am ready to kick on now.”
