Buzsaky: Hoping to force his way into Warnock's first-team plans
Akos Buzsaky is delighted to be involved with an ambitious outfit like Queens Park Rangers, but admits he is hoping to be more than just a squad player.
The Hungarian playmaker has been at Loftus Road since 2008, making him a rarity in as much as he has survived the many ups and downs taken in by the club in recent years.
The 29-year-old admits he is honoured to still form part of the club's plans, as they attempt to consolidate back in the Premier League, but is keen to point out that he has his own targets.
Buzsaky has been selected in Neil Warnock's squad for the forthcoming campaign and insists he will do all he can to force his way out of the shadows and into the top flight spotlight.
"Last week the squad was narrowed down to the 25 players that can play during the season," Buzsaky told Nemzeti Sport.
"I should be happy that I was chosen and I could also say that it is an honour to sit on the bench of a Premier League club, but that is not enough for me.
"Our manager, Neil Warnock, knows he can rely on me at any time.
"I am the last member of the old QPR generation, but that is down to me. It was only me that decided I would stay here. I won't be forgotten about.
"I think it is not only talent but also persistence that you need if you want to be successful in football outside of Hungary.
"Our aim this season is to avoid relegation, but I think there is more calmness than stress in the dressing room. It's good to be here at the moment."
