QPR playmaker Taarabt happy playing for Redknapp
Taarabt has been an ever present in the starting XI under Redknapp and insists he has never felt so good about his game.
He told the London Evening Standard: "Harry has something that not a lot of managers have - when you play for him, he makes you feel you're better than the opposition you're playing against. I said thank you to him [over selling him to QPR] because since I've been here, this club have given a lot to me and I've had the best time in my career here.
"I was young [at Tottenham], I didn't speak the language. I was in the team sometimes, came off the bench or was just in the squad sometimes. It was a very difficult time for me."
