Chelsea new boy slams dishonest Liverpool

Chelsea’s Loic Remy has accused Liverpool of being dishonest abut his failed move to Anfield over the summer.

The French striker switched to Stamford Bridge from QPR as the transfer deadline approached in an £8.5m deal, but he had been on the verge of becoming a Reds star a matter months before.

Liverpool agreed to trigger his release clause and jetted him out to America – where they were on a pre-season tour – to conduct a medical, however issues regarding the examination caused the Merseysiders to pull the plug.

Rumours suggest the problem revolved around a heart condition the 27-year-old suffers from, but some speculation has suggested that his wage demands were deemed too great or that Mario Balotelli’s availability swayed their stance.

And Remy has now hit out at Liverpool, accusing them of not being clear about the saga:

“It was not very honest from their side,” he is quoted by The Metro.

“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.”

Remy sailed through his medical with Chelsea, with the Blues signing him to replace Fernando Torres.
