The Streets Won't Forget Adel Taarabt Turning The Championship Into His Own Personal Playground

The Streets Won't Forget Adel Taarabt Turning The Championship Into His Own Personal Playground

Adel Taarabt turning the Championship into his own personal Powerleague is one of the greatest individual seasons ever.

Taarabt produced an incredible highlight reel in 2010/2011 as QPR marched to the title and Premier League football.

A huge part of that was Taarabt, who played like a man possessed in midfield after signing permanently from Tottenham Hotspur.

The Moroccan scored 19 goals and provided 21 assists in 44 games, tormenting defenders across the league.

A true maverick and the last of a dying breed, Taarabt produced magic with the ball at his feet and was truly exciting to watch.

He drew new eyes to Championship football and wowed fans worldwide with his spellbinding performances.

The end of the season saw him scoop up the Football League Player of the Year award while also being a first-ballot Championship PFA Team of the Year nominee.

Many were excited to see what he'd produce in the top-flight and while there were a few enjoyable moments, it arguably never matched his form in the league below.

Fans have reacted to the compilation and they'd love to see another player like Taarabt come around.

Neil Warnock is the man credited with getting the best out of Taarabt and he admitted to completely building the team around him.

Warnock told A Bola: "I built a team at his will. I had never done that. And I never did it again. I had a feeling that it would be him who would lead us to the Premier League.

"He's fantastic with the ball, he does wonders with the ball. I've never seen anyone with such skill. He has a difficult personality, he was also an exhibitionist, but he has to be well led."

Now 31-years-old, Taarabt is playing for Portuguese outfit Benfica and featured in their 1-1 draw with Arsenal in the Europa League on Thursday evening.
