Nelsen looking to get one over Spurs


Ryan Nelsen is expected to line up in the QPR defence when Tottenham visit Loftus Road on Saturday.

The New Zealander will face his former side in what will be one of his final games for Harry Redknapp’s side after the 35-year-old was appointed as the new boss of MLS outfit FC Toronto.

He admits himself that at his age playing Premier League matches is a struggle for his body but is looking to get one over AVB and his old team-mates.

Nelsen told the press: “Toronto was too great an ­opportunity to turn down.

“I really want QPR to stay up and to kick on for Harry and because of the owner. They are just fantastic people.

“They would like me to keep playing but we have to sit down and talk. If we can get five straight wins, that would be perfect. I think then we can shake hands and part company but we are just going to have to talk and see how things progress.

“They understand that when I play I am playing on glass knees and glass ankles. It is a bit of a struggle.”
