QPR defender Christopher Samba knows people are questioning his £12 million price-tag.

Samba insists the mega bucks deal with Anzhi was out of his hands.

He told The Sun: “I don’t know how you judge if it’s too much money but I know some people do.

“Is £12m too much? I don’t know. Or if it was another player would it be OK? Maybe someone else is more worth it?

“Maybe some people believe what I have done in football, my reputation, what I did at Blackburn was enough for this.

“I’m not there to judge it. I’ve been bought. It’s not me who chose to buy me. I didn’t set the price. I’ve been bought for a reason — because QPR believe I can make a difference.

“I certainly believed I could lead the team. I don’t know if it will be enough but, one thing is for sure, I will do my best to help the team.

“People can talk about these things but they don’t really know me. When I go on to the pitch, I give everything. Sometimes everything can be fantastic, sometimes it can be not enough, but I give my all.”
