Chelsea star Remy made 'bad career choice' - French football expert

Loic Remy

Pierre Menes has claimed that Loic Remy made a bade decision in leaving QPR to join Chelsea.

Remy left Loftus Road on transfer deadline day, signing a four-year contract at Stamford Bridge, scoring on his debut for the Blues after coming on as a substitute for Diego Costa.

He has yet to hit the back of the net since his opening goal, looking out of sorts in League Cup and Champions League ties, and with the incredible strike rate of Costa - who has nine goals in seven games - it looks unlikely that the French international will break into the first-team for the Premier League campaign.

Despite his lack of inclusion at club level, he is still appearing regularly for his country, netting two goals in two months in friendlies against Spain and Armenia, but French journalist Pierre Menes believes that Remy should never have moved to Chelsea, calling it a ‘bad career choice’.

Quoted by le10sport, Menes said: “Given the lack of game time that will continue to happen at Chelsea - I understand, a bad career choice, but that’s another topic - it is clear he must show something in each of his appearances in the French jersey.

“He scored against Spain, he scores again in Armenia, plus a shot against the post. It shows that even in a time of very limited play he is able to bring to this team.”

Remy admitted upon his move that he could never turn down the Blues, with the Champions League on offer at ‘one of the best clubs in the world’. But if his lack of first-team football does not change in the near future, the 27-year-old could well be looking for a move away from Stamford Bridge - something that Menes would love to see.
