Mourinho: ‘No chance of Remy joining West Ham’

|

Remy_3212010Jose Mourinho has insisted that Loic Remy will stay at Chelsea despite reported media interest by West Ham. The player himself also says that he wants to stay and fight for his space at the club.

Remy, who scored nine goals in his 27 appearances last season risks being the No 3 striker again behind Diego Costa and loan-signing Radamel Falcao, but says he is determined to force his way into the team and views a move away as a step down.

Asked about a potential move for Remy to West Ham, Mourinho said: ‘No chance. I like the Eiffel Tower, but I can’t have it in my garden. Last season Remy was basically the third forward, but he scored so many important goals for us in crucial moments that gave us crucial points – the goal against Hull City, the goal against Stoke at the end of the season.’

Remy was asked whether he was flattered by the interest of clubs like West Ham he said: ‘I am. But I never wanted to leave this club because I feel really good. Of course I want to play more but I’m sure I can play more here.ย That’s my target and I just try to make it happen by working hard and showing everybody and the manager that he can count on me. For me, my mind is here and I don’t want to leave at the minute.”

    Good – let’s hope they step up their interest in Charlie Austin and offload some of the dead wood (Nolan & Jarvis) as part of the deal!
