The whole situation with the failed medical at Liverpool has really annoyed Loic Remy to the point that he has accused Liverpool of not being honest.
No one outside of Liverpool will ever know why they suddenly pulled the plug on a deal to sign Loic Remy so the continued comment and speculation will continue to persist until there is literally something else to talk about. The fact he has moved to one of Liverpool's title rivals and passed the same medical without problem has simply added momentum.
I personally think that Liverpool were made aware of the late availability of Mario Ballotelli and used the failed medical as an excuse to pull the plug and bring the Italian to Anfield instead. I could of course be totally wrong, but think about it, no one had even mentioned his name until around that time.
However, until there is something else to talk about for Remy, he is continually asked of what happened and that anomaly he has on the wall of his heart. In response, he has not been shy about coming forward and criticising Liverpool:
"I did not understand Liverpool's decision. It was not very honest from their side.
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."
When he signed for Chelsea, Jose Mourinho was also asked of the failed medical at Liverpool and said:
"The information we have from specialists in different areas is he doesn't have a problem to play football."
It's something that will always be talked about here, especially if Remy proves to be a success at Chelsea. If he suffers the same here as Fernando Torres, it will talked about in a negative way. As I said previously, I wouldn't be surprised if the Balotelli deal played a part in Liverpool pulling the plug.
One thing is certain, Remy is now focused on his this stage of his career at Stamford Bridge and is looking to get back to doing what he does best, playing football.
"I am proud to wear the Chelsea shirt. There is a coach there able to help my progression. It’s the ideal team for me."
Let's hope he scores the goals we know he has in him, possibly starting this weekend against Swansea!
