Samba explains leaving high-flying Anzhi for QPR

Christopher Samba has no regrets leaving Anzhi for QPR.

Samba admits he returned to England to be close to his family.

He told The Sun: "Tony Fernandes showed great belief in me and I will try to pay him back.

"I think the transfer came across totally wrong because of the valuation. At Anzhi, I had three years left on a big salary so, obviously, if I came to QPR it was not to make more money.

"I came back to England for personal reasons but I'm sure that Anzhi will be one of the biggest clubs in the world. They have an owner who is investing so much in the team, they just paid a lot of money to sign Willian.

"So you know you have to be crazy to leave a team like this but it was just a question of me really wanting to be back with my boys.

"I have two young boys I want to have a great life with. That's why I decided to come back to Europe but Anzhi will really be one of the big teams in world football."
