The picture is not from the source.

DANNY MURPHY fears Fulham could be sunk tomorrow by a player he wanted at Craven Cottage.

QPR’s star midfielder Adel Taarabt was a team-mate of Murphy during his spell at Tottenham five years ago.

The Moroccan had just arrived at White Hart Lane and Murphy was so impressed he later tried to get ex-boss Roy Hodgson to sign him for Fulham.

Instead Taarabt ended up at QPR, where he scored 19 goals in his first season.

“He had a superb temperament,” Murphy said. “If he got kicked he never moaned. 

“He had a strong mentality and he’s reaping his rewards now, so he’s probably destined for bigger and better things.
“We’ve got to deal with him on Sunday, so we’ll have to be careful.”

Fulham could bring back Bobby Zamora for the visit of QPR with two-goal Europa League hero Andy Johnson potentially dropping out.

But Murphy is hoping Johnson will shake off any disappointment and sign a new long-term deal.
