Redknapp – Remy Wouldn’t Talk – Newcastle A Fantastic Club

2:31 am, Saturday, January 12th, 2013 by Ed Harrison · 9 Comments

Harry Redknapp seems to be resigned to losing out on Loic Remy – the French International striker – who it seems will either stay at Marseilles or join Newcastle near the end of January.

Loic Remy of Marseille has attracted interest from Newcastle United

Loic Remy – didn’t even want to talk to Redknapp

And the QPR manager has been up front and has revealed that Remy didn’t even want to speak to him when the QPR manager traveled to talk to the Marseilles striker last Sunday,  about a possible move to QPR.

Harry has been talking to the press (what again), and he had this to say about Remy and his adventure to France last Sunday:

“I don’t know where he’ll end up. I think Newcastle are interested but he’s also thinking about staying at Marseilles.” “He’s not playing regularly at Marseilles and I think it would have been good for him to come and play in the Premier League and try to help us stay up.”

“If the worst comes to the worst and we couldn’t survive, at least he’s in the shop window and the big clubs would want him.” “And if he does score the goals we would hope he would score, then there’s every chance we would stay up.”  “He didn’t want to come to us.”

“He didn’t even want to speak about coming.” “I went over last week to watch him play, not that I needed to as I watched him about seven times when I was at Tottenham.”  “I couldn’t even get a meeting with him. I was hoping to talk to him to encourage him to come.”

“I think he was in a position where, when I was at Tottenham, he was interested in coming and I got on well with the lad so he would have felt embarrassed coming to say he didn’t want to come to QPR.” “He wasn’t being disrespectful. He was just in a position he didn’t know how to handle, so I’ve got no problems with him.”

“He may change his mind, you don’t know. I wouldn’t write him off completely. I’d like to get him if possible but it’s not going to be easy.”

And Harry was then asked about Newcastle’s interest in the player, and you have to remember that Harry turned down the chance to manage Newcastle in January of 2008, after big Sam Allardyce was shown the door, and before Kevin Keegan was appointed manager for the second time on January 16th of 2008.

This is what Harry said:

“Newcastle are in a similar position league-wise, but Newcastle is one of the great clubs – 50-odd thousand Geordies every week in their black and white shirts – a fantastic football club.”

Good (and true) words from Harry Redknapp there – and let’s hope Loic Remy reads these reports of what the QPR manager said about Newcastle United – we need him at Newcastle.

    I agree. Sounds like Redknapp fancies a job at Newcastle. Why wouldn’t he? He probably reckons he could have us higher up the table when we are now. Anyone else always felt that Pardew’s been a bit lucky at Newcastle and that a lot of our previous success simply down to Graham Carr finding some top players?
