Redknapp – Remy Didn’t Fail Medical – He’ll Stay At QPR


The news was leaked yesterday that Loic Remy failed his medical in Boston and his proposed £8M move to the Reds was called off.

Loic Remy – while on loan at Newcastle last season

But QPR manager Harry Redknapp has come out today and basically said that Loic didn’t fail his medical – and it must have been that Liverpool – for whatever reason – changed their minds on Remy – and didn’t want to sign him.

That’s always possible we suppose – although unusual because now Liverpool will need to go out and sign another striker.

This is what the QPR manager said today:

“Loic will come back here.” “Their loss is our gain. I have got a fantastic striker capable of scoring 20 goals in the Premier League.”  “We need him now to come in here and get 20 goals. So from a selfish point of view I have got a great striker.”

“If he is here, we will be delighted to have him back.”  “I don’t see how he has failed a medical. It doesn’t make sense.”  “He had a stringent medical here, one at Marseille, one at Newcastle and one with France before the World Cup.”

“He’s never had a problem with his fitness. You could not meet a fitter lad. There can’t be any issue with his fitness.”  “I can’t see a medical reason. There must be other reasons. That (failing medical) is not possible. There has to be another reason.”

“He has never failed a medical before. He’s never had a problem and didn’t miss a game at Newcastle.” “They must have changed their mind or decided to go in another direction.”

Remy did have a problem with his medical at Marseilles back in 2010, when he was transferring from Nice, but he did pass that medical and signed on at Marseilles for €15M (£12M).

And that statement by Harry is also somewhat political, because if Loic does have some medical condition – it will lower his transfer fee – which is not what QPR want – should Remy decide he still wants to leave QPR.

And that’s the big question now –  whether Loic will want to move to a bigger club than QPR – who have only just been promoted back to the Premier League.

Newcastle would almost certainly be willing to take him on a permanent basis, even though some fans didn’t like his attitude over the last couple of months of last season, but we wonder what the transfer fee will be – with figures in the press ranging from £8M to £15M.

But Remy is a proven Premier League goalscorer at Newcastle, and he would still be a terrific permanent signing for the Magpies.

What do you think?

    Germany games this weekend should give us a good idea of who’s going to start our first game against City, I just hope Pardew is done with trying to play Sissoko as a RW. Cabella should play there with Gouffy on LW and De Jong behind Riviere.

    Would you rather play in a team with Cabella, Sissoko & De Jong behind you or stay at QPR ? .

    If Remy choses to stay at QPR this season I will have lost all respect for him as a footballer as he only cares about the money if he choses them again .

    SUFC

    I’m enjoying your dilemma.

    You reeeeally don’t want to reply to the questions regarding the typo do you?
    Almost as much as you don’t want to change your username cause that would be a clear admission of a rather low IQ (aka being a mackem).

    Well at least your accidentally very entertaining. Bet you never thought you’d ever hear such a compliment! 😀

    Keep up the great blogging buddy!

    Floppy Chops Harry is so full of sh1t, greedy twat had to steal Remy from right under our noses and has does nothing but spout on about how brilliant he is while trying to offload him at every given opportunity. Remy showed his true colours by signing with QPR in the first place. A pair of untrustworthy F-wits, they deserve each other.

    When asked how he knew the details of Remys medical which he didn’t attend in America because he wasn’t there Dr. Harry Rednapp eminent quack and witch doctor was quoted as saying ” I’m going to put a spell on you” but then realised he couldn’t do that either so he just huffed and puffed and was led back to his cell where he could pretend he was a football manager or at least that’s what he told himself….
