Remy reveals dissapointment with QPR Move
- Updated: March 5, 2013
QPR manager, Harry Redknapp, paid £8million for the striker, hoping the Frenchman could fire the west London club to safety.
With two goals in his first four Premier League games for the Rs, it seems that he has settled in quickly.

However, as ESPN report, the French international had other plans than to be fighting a relegation battle: “I didn’t want to leave as a failure. I wanted to finish the season there and then go somewhere else.”
With reported wages of £75,000 a week, Remy accepted the four-and-a-half-year deal but claims that it was against his wishes: “I was taken aback when I saw that the board had made their decision behind my back.
“When I learned that, I was a little disappointed. They told me at the last minute, that saddened me. Things were great with the rest of the squad.”
The QPR signing has spent his career troubled by injury, and has already spent a month on the sidelines since joining Rangers.
Remy has hit back at critics that injury and poor form was a consequence of his lifestyle off the pitch.
“When everything’s going well and you’re scoring goals, you’re the king of the town. You can drive at 340km/h, go to nightclubs, and no-one says anything,
“But as soon as things start going less well, tongues start to wag. But those who are close to me know the kind of person I am. They don’t read the press, unlike the supporters, who can only get their information through it.”
With Remy being a crucial part of Redknapp’s plans, a spell of form from the striker is essential for QPR’s chances of survival.
Marseille are currently sitting in third place in the French League with expectations of Champions League Football next season, but Remy will have to forget his regrets if his team are to climb out of the relegation zone.
