“It doesn’t make sense” | Harry Redknapp responds to Remy’s failure with Liverpool medicals (READ)

by Mark Bassey


Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp, has said that he does believe Loic Remy failed his medicals at Liverpool and insists there must be another reason why the deal fell through.

Both clubs agreed a £8.5million deal for Remy and the French striker travelled to USA to complete the transfer, before the Reds announced that he did not pass his medical.

“I don’t see how he has failed a medical. It doesn’t make sense,” Redknapp said.

“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 (where he spent last season on loan).

“They must have changed their mind or decided to go in another direction.”

Redknapp however said he was ready to welcome the striker back to Loftus Road.

“He will come back here,” he said. “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.”
