The big interview our striker did in France that created headlines yesterday, actually saw Loic Remy accused of wasting his career.

It is ironic that the one quote that was picked out to make the misleading headlines that have continued into today, was actually not just misdirecting fans, but also missing out on an interesting proper Remy quote.

Thanks to our top translator Pierre who tracked down the full interview and these are the relevant questions and answers from the France Football interview;

You are twenty seven years old, a huge talent.  Right now do you think you have wasted your career? Don’t you think you should have achieved more and won more titles?

Wasted, it’s a bit harsh. There have been things that have hampered my career. For sure it’s a shame. Today, without being pretentious, I could perhaps play in a bigger club, a European top 5 club. I don’t really know …

Will it happen one day?

Yes, I will be at a top 5 European club or at a very big club. I’m aware of what I am capable of. I can still be much better, I have massive room for improvement.
