There Is Now A Twitter Account Dedicated To Adel Taarabt's Filthiest Skills And Goals For QPR

A Twitter account showcasing some of Adel Taarabt's best goals and skills for QPR went viral earlier this week, leading some fans to reminisce about the Moroccan's time at Loftus Road.

'Stop It Taarabt' only posted for the first time on the 12th of November, but already the account has amassed thousands of likes and retweets.

While the very first clip shows the Morrocan playing for Spurs, the club he was at just prior to QPR, all others since then have been from Taarabt's time with The Rs.

A graduate of the Lens academy in France, Taarabt spent several years with Tottenham before joining QPR in 2009. This move, initially on loan, would turn out to be one of the club's shrewdest ever investments.

Taarabt would go on to play over 100 times for Niel Warnock's side, captaining them to Premier League promotion in 2011 after a standout individual campaign.

He was head and shoulders above the Championship opposition that season, as is evidenced by some of the following clips - which you can view below.

It wasn't all about the goals, however. Taarabt would only score 26 in total for QPR across six years, but the skills that he pulled off during this time is arguably what fans loved most about the temperamental midfielder.

The Morrocan international never quite reached the heights that many expected he would after a watershed Championship season.

In the Premier League, Taarabt struggled for consistency, eventually leading to loan spells at Fulham and AC Milan.

In more recent years, he has had something of a career rebirth, going on to play 59 times for Benfica as a more defensive-minded midfielder - something that previously would have been viewed as impossible given his perceived work rate.

Now aged 32, he is still a valued squad member at the Portuguese club, featuring 14 times already this campaign.
