Loic Remy has spoken glowingly of QPR manager Harry Redknapp as Rangers head into the final five matches of the season.
The forward has been in sensational goal-scoring form since his arrival in January from Marseille, and he says he is enjoying working under the R’s gaffer.
“He is very good, very good,” Remy said. “I’m really happy with his training methods and management style.
“It’s always different when you work under a new manager and with him I really like his way of working. He’s someone who is always working hard and demands more of us. He always reminds us that we should give our best at all times and never give up.
“I was aware of his qualities before when he was the manager of Tottenham. That’s the reason why I’m working with him now.”
Remy has scored five goals in nine games for the R’s, opening his QPR account on his debut at West Ham. Despite taking to English football so well, the 26-year-old says the style here is very different to back home in France.
“The Premier League is more aggressive, more contact, played at a higher intensity and in France we are trained more on the tactical side of the game,” he explains. “It’s different, even the atmosphere in the stadiums here is very special.
“Here the stadiums are full for every game, in France only for the big games and occasions. But here it’s different. If you look at our last home game against Wigan the stadium was packed.
“So, for me, it is great to be a part of it and find out new things.”
Remy knows he and his team-mates face an uphill struggle in their battle to stay in the Premier League. The R’s are currently ten points adrift of safety, but the Frenchman said: “We must believe. Even if there is only a little chance, we won’t give up.”
