QPR Boss Makes Clear Redknapp Talking Rubbish – Remy Loan Deal Is On

8 years ago

At one time you couldn’t shut the likes of John Hall and Freddy Shepherd up when they were running Newcastle, how times change.

There is obviously a happy middle ground but one club Chairman who happily communicates with fans and everybody else is QPR’s Tony Fernandes.

Fernandes mainly uses Twitter to communicate on what at times is a minute to minute basis but overall he seems to have a very good rapport with Rangers’ fans who appreciate the openness and updates.

Only problem is that having another publicity hungry person at your club can lead to conflicting messages, this is what ‘Arry Redknapp had to say yesterday with regard to a possible loan deal on their striker Loic Remy;

“I don’t think he (Remy) will go on loan, I don’t see any sense in it.         

I don’t know why we would £8m and then loan him out, if he wants to go then someone will have to pay for him – he has a buy-out clause (£8m) and we want our money back.”

However, the QPR Chairman has now said the following via Twitter admitting they can’t keep ‘expensive players’ in the Championship and that ‘Loans are a good option’.

However, Fernandes also intimates that they could be looking at a loan deal for a year with the hope/expectation that instant promotion will happen and they can then get these loan players back for their Premiership return. Remy would appear to be the central figure in that kind of strategy.

However, it takes some leap of faith to believe Mike Ashley would pay massive wages to a loan player if there was no guarantee of acquiring this ‘asset’ if the short-term loan proved a success.

“We need players who want to play with us. And apply themselves. We can’t keep expensive players.”

“Some players want to play in the Premier League due to World Cup. Loans are a good option. As we hope to come back to the Premier League.”

“We learnt from last season. We won’t repeat same mistakes. Full stop. You will see some exciting new faces and some leavers will disappoint.”
