Loic Remy: Liverpool were 'not very honest'

Loic Remy

The Chelsea striker was all set to join the Reds earlier this summer but the move fell through over a failed medical.

Loic Remy insists Liverpool were 'not very honest' about his proposed move to Anfield earlier this summer.

While at Queens Park Rangers, Remy was in talks with the Reds over joining them on Merseyside - but the club later announced that he had failed a medical and pulled the plug on the deal.

The Frenchman, however, insists Liverpool's actions were 'not very honest.'

Indeed, Remy says he has met 'all the specialists in the world' and that the problems which prompted the Reds to reject him are common among many other footballers.

"I did not understand Liverpool’s decision. It was not very honest from their side," the 27-year-old told reporters.

"I was not scared. I know exactly what I have, I met all the specialists in the world. A lot of players share the same situation as mine and Liverpool know it."

Now, Remy is at Chelsea after completing a move from QPR late in the transfer window.

And, ahead of the Blues' first Premier League clash since the international break, the Frenchman says he is proud to wear the Chelsea shirt and has targeted a first-team place in the club's 'ideal' squad.

"I am proud to wear the Chelsea shirt," he added. "There is a coach there able to help my progression. It’s the ideal team for me.

"I know I am not in the starting XI but nothing is fixed. When you want it, you are able to do it."

Remy is yet to score this season but netted 14 times while on loan at Newcastle United last term.
