QPR signing Stephane Mbia says he was told to leave by Olympique Marseille last week.

The 26-year-old was made to realise that he had no option but to head away from Marseille due to their financial situation.

"I didn't want to go but the owner of the club made me understand I had to leave," Mbia said in The Sun.

"The wage bill had to be reduced and certain players had to go."
