When Loic Remy got back in the dressing room after the game yesterday, the Newcastle players were telling him his second goal was reminiscent of the great Thierry Henry, and it was both a precise and clinical strike from the 26 year-old French International.
Loic Remy – compared to Thierry Henry
That’s a huge complement to be compared to one of the best ever strikers ever to grace the Premier League, along with our very own Alan Shearer, but Loic seems to have brushed it off and says he wants to be known as Loic Remy, and not just being similar in style to Henry.
This is what Loic said on the Newcastle web-site immediately after the game yesterday:
“I am very happy and delighted because that is what I work all week for,” “I am a striker so it is my job to score.” “Today I took my chances.”
“The first goal was very good – in training I was not scoring many goals with my feet but I worked hard to change that, so when I saw the ball in the net I was very happy.”
“The second goal, I did a good job in following the ball and scoring.” “The guys in the changing room said to me it was like a Thierry Henry goal, so that made me smile.”
“I am often compared with Thierry Henry and it is nice to hear that from people because it means I am doing something right.”
“But we are two different players with two different careers and I want to be known for being Loic Remy, not just someone who is like him.”
France’s manager Didier Deschamps will be happy to read this morning how both Loic Remy and Yoan Cabaye had excellent games yesterday for Newcastle.
And Deschamps may consider calling up Yoan Gouffran, who continues to perform well in almost every game for the side, and has fought his way back to being a starter again, against some significant competition.
Didier must look for Newcastle’s result every week these days, as he checks on five or six Newcastle players who could make the France World Cup squad for next summer.
When are we going to see Didier Deschamps at St. James’ Park?
