“He (Beale)is obsessed with football and what I always admire about him is the way he treated the players, and the way he got ideas into your mind,” Balogun told QPR’s official website.
“I am more than delighted to work with him again and to be part of this project here, and hopefully leave a great mark.”
Balogun is looking forward to returning to England. describing himself as a player, he explained: “I am quite aggressive, I am a fighter and I think I can read the game quite well.
“Overall, loads come from my mentality and work ethic – never to give up and really work hard for the things you strive for.”
