Full Of Potential
While speaking after the match with Hull, QPR gaffer Mark Warburton hailed the player who has scored six times this season in the league.
Ebere is a very, very talented young player. There is loads of work for him to do and loads of potential for him to still discover,” Warburton said.
“He’s a good player and you saw his quality, his character and his desire to be a better player today [ Saturday]. He’s a very talented individual and he has a very big future ahead of him.
“He’s a powerful athlete and he can go left or right. He looks to get on the ball, his awareness is good and he has lots of technical ability.
“Like all young players, he has to work hard because this can be a spiteful game if you don’t work hard.
“He’s a pleasure to work with day-in, day-out, as are Ilias, Brighty, Dom Ball, Ryan Manning; there are a number of very good young players in our squad. We have to keep working with them.”
Ebere was born in Greenwich, England to Nigerian parents and joined QPR in the 2016/17 season on a free after a youth career at Millwall.
