New QPR manager Harry Redknapp impressed by Julio Cesar but confirms injury

New Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp has praised goalkeeper Julio Cesar after beginning his reign with a 0-0 draw at Sunderland, where the Brazilian was substituted at half-time with an injury.

Julio Cesar, 33, has impressed greatly in his first few months in West London, almost single-handedly earning points for his new side who have yet to record a win.

Largely untested against Sunderland, bar one fine low save to deny Scottish striker Steven Fletcher, Cesar looks set to spend some time on the sidelines with a torn groin in the coming weeks.

“It’s a torn groin,” Redknapp confirmed post-match. “He [Cesar] is a good pro. I’ve been impressed with him as a fella and you can see why he’s done what he has in the game.

“Rob [Green] came on and made a good save, so I’m lucky to have two good keepers.”

Redknapp, though, will be largely pleased with what he saw from his side on a terrible evening at the Stadium of Light, with Rangers enjoying the better of the match for long-periods.
