Djibril Cisse believes Queens Park Rangers are going to become a “very big club” in the Premier League.

The 30-year-old scored six goals in eight games for QPR since moving back to the English top flight from Serie A outfit Lazio in a cut-price £4m deal in January.

Mark Hughes’ side managed to avoid an immediate return to the Championship despite losing to Manchester City on the final day of the season after Bolton Wanderers were unable to beat Stoke City.

And Cisse is now looking forward to maximising QPR’s potential, insisting the London outfit are going places.

“In my mind, when I want something, I do everything I can to achieve my target,” Cisse told QPR’s website. “It’s mostly in your head, so if you want to do something, you can do miracles – trust me.

“I’m really proud to be playing in the greatest league in the world for QPR.

“We may not be viewed as a big club in terms of titles and trophies, but in terms of organisation, structure and ambition, trust me, we’re going to be a very big club. The potential here is massive.”

Cisse, capped 41 times by France, also described his great relationship with the QPR owner Tony Fernandes.

“I don’t normally have very close, friendly relationships with owners of clubs, maybe only once before with the President of Panathinaikos, but it is different here,” he added.

“Tony is really approachable. If you need him, he is always there for you. If you need help or guidance, he is always available with some sound advice.

“You want to do well for people like him; to give your everything for them.”
