Loic Remy was cleared of the rape charge against him yesterday by the Metropolitan police, and he has also served his three match suspension for being sent off at Norwich City and the lad has been interviewed in the Shields Gazette today and he takes responsibility for missing the last three games, and Newcastle have really missed their number one goalscorer.
Loic Remy – he has a big responsibility at Newcastle
Newcastle haven’t scored a goal in the four matches since they returned from their warm weather break in Abu Dhabi, and of course Remy has missed the last three games in which Newcastle have conceded a whopping 10 goals.
This is what Remy told the Shields Gazette today:
“I just know I have to score – this is my job.” “It’s not pressure, it’s just normal. I am a striker, and it’s my job to score goals.”
“We have conceded 10 goals in three games, which is a lot. At the same time we haven’t scored any goals.” “For me, I know I have a big responsibility. The fans are expecting a lot from me.”
“I made a mistake against Norwich,” “I should have kept my self-control. Now I have learned from my mistake and I won’t do it again.”
“I think my team has missed me. For me, it was difficult to see my team lose some games.” “It’s difficult when you cannot play, especially when the team is not playing very well. It’s a shame not to have the possibility to play.”
“Now I will come back and try to help the team as much as I can.” “I’m happy to come back, because I haven’t played for three weeks.”
Of course to make things worse Bradley Johnson, who was sent off with Remy near the end of the Norwich game, had his card rescinded but Loic’s three game suspension stood – why that was the case we have no idea but, this is the FA in action and you can never ever accuse that organization of being logical.
And those are good words from Loic, who Alan Pardew says the French striker has been a first-rate professional at Newcastle, and that makes it even harder, because we expect Loic to sign in the summer for a bigger and more ambitious club than Newcastle.
That’s such a shame because he will be sadly missed next season.
