QPR Coach, Warburton: Eze Is Pleasure To Work With – Powerful Player With Lots of Technical Ability

Queens Park Rangers manager, Mark Warburton, has talked up the top quality of Ebere Eze following the Nigerian-born attacking midfielder’s match-winning performance in their Sky Bet Championship 3-2 win at Hull City on Saturday, Completesports.com reports.

Hull City shot into the lead through Jarrod Bowen in the 29th minute, and Ryan Manning equalized for QPR in the 44th minute.


Eze troubled the home team’s defence time and again as QPR bossed the second half. Then he won two penalties, in the 78th and 88th minutes and converted the spot kicks himself on both occasions to turn the game on its head, handing the Warburton’s men a 3-1 lead. Hull’s second goal in the 90th minute by Josh Magennis wasn’t enough, and the visitors won it 3-2 at the KCOM Stadium.

Eze’s brace against Hull took his season’s tally to six league goals from 12 games.

Warburton could not his admiration of Eze’s quality and his man-of-the match showing in the away win when he spoke during the post-match press conference.

“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 told reporters.

“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.”

Warburton added: “It’s a team game. We defend our goal and we pick up second balls and we build from there, so it is all about the team.

“I’m delighted for Ebere but he will be the first one to say that it is a big three points for the team and now we focus on a tough game against Reading on Tuesday.”

Eze, 21, was born in Greenwich, England to Nigerian parents. He is eligible to represent Nigeria at senior international level if he decides to switch allegiance. He has represented his country of birth England at U-20 and U-21 levels.

He joined Queens Park Rangers in 2016/17 season on a free after a youth career at Millwall. Eze then played on loan at third tier English League One side Wycombe Wanderers in 1917/18 season before rejoining his parent club QPR for this season.

  • all we are saying……. give us……

  • ROHR please this guy is the man u need. If nigeria must conquer the worldcup u need these midfielders. Ebere eze. Iwobi. Nwakali.azubuike.etebo.aribo.ndidiand onazi. This is the star to watch. U also need another chukwueze and that is mankajoula. Onyekuru and kalu addition of musa. Osihmen okereke and sheyi ojo. Good enough for centre forward. Defends as usual. If u want to be a record making coach please take this list for free

      My Dear Brother, You just nailed it with the list you gave.

      I don’t know how to reach Rhor but I know he is a great world cup coach, he listens to advise and believes in the youth.

      I pray fervently for our coach to see this list you just listed.

    • JimmyBall 4 years ago

      …the player to breathe down chukwueze’s neck as a natural left footer is Bobby Adekanye. He is Chukwueze’s direct copy.

    He is already coming

    Let’s hope Ebere Eze is amongst the 3 guys reported to be processing their international switch at the moment. The kid is damn good. We can only extend an invite to him once FIFA has approved the switch….that is if at all he has applied. I recall Rohr did invite him, Akpom and Maja (I stand to be corrected) to the eagles camp a year or 2 ago to train with the eagles.

    For now we just keep praying he keeps getting better and that the English FA will maintain their policy of not calling up lower league players to the 3 lions.

    @Dr Drey,Ebere was invited by Rohr in 2017 for a friendly game I think against Senega.Fine player by all standard hope we get him.

  • If they gain promotion to the premiership and we do not get him to play for us. We might lose him to England. They will be ready to just give him a cap. And probably leave him to rot.

  • Nigeria needs Kingsley Ehizhue of FC Cologne to boost our defense line. God bless Nigeria

    I don talk taya for this forum……..I won’t stop asking for these three guys:

    1) SHEYI OJO
    2) EBERE EZE

    If we get these three guys, our already good squad will become even better. As per better thing, dem dey talk am two times? Looks like NFF have activated SIDDON LOOK MODE as far as this matter is concerned. Make we no SIDDON LOOK lose these gems to England ooo. England will cap tie them and cast them aside. We must not let that happen. If the guys are interested, (and I believe they all are), let’s get them ASAP!

  • I just tweeted @thenff,@NgSuperEagles,@pinnickAmeju over the same issue…
    Mind you, Ebere only played in U21 friendlies for England so can play for us without the rigors of paperwork change of allegiance..
    So genort rohr & nff technical department should act fast…period!

  • Pompei 4 years ago

    Saturday, October 19, 2019. Watch clips of EBERE EZE destroying Hull City.


    • Honestly speaking he reminds me of the great jay jay okocha. His confidents is extraodinari iwobi and aribo together with this guy will be disastrous to any defends. God bless naija. My worldcup dream is begining to build again. Abeg oga rohr dont use ur late substitute mentality on this matter at all. One canot imagine how you could see etebo and ajayi in thesame championship and u just couldnt realise this kind of germ. U only have iwobi and without iwobi so far Nigeria has failed. Even before and after the worldcup iwobi and moses has been our only hope. Nigeria has always suffered that playmaking role after jayjay. Mikel never impressed any body including my grand mother. Just beign unecesarily overated in the name of chelsea he was a fine defensive midfielder although couldnot shoot acurately couldnot play freekick canot head the ball canot take penalty. Dribble na manage. Obodo also tried but also a deffensive midfielder. We cant afford to mix out on this already made Ebere eze .

  • Asoko Emmanuel 4 years ago

    This guy is extra ordinary,he’s an improved version of Iwobi with a similar playing style.Wooow what a delight to watch hope we get him soon.

    • My thoughts exactly. He looks like an upgrade of Iwobi same way Aribo is an upgrade of Mikel.

  • banky 4 years ago

    dey should invite eze to our national team
