Loic Remy Says Playing FIFA 12 With Tony Fernandes Convinced Him to Join QPR, Not Newcastle: The Nightly EPL

 

fifa 121 Loic Remy Says Playing FIFA 12 With Tony Fernandes Convinced Him to Join QPR, Not Newcastle: The Nightly EPL

French striker Loic Remy was convinced he should join Queens Park Rangers instead of Newcastle United because QPR owner Tony Fernandes took time to play a FIFA 12 game against him at the end of four hours of negotiations.

“It showed to me what a good person Tony is. He showed his human side to me as an owner of the club,” said Remy, quoted in The Telegraph.

So it wasn’t the opportunity to double his wages at QPR that did the trick, eh Loic?

Meanwhile, at St. James’s Park, Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew was last seen honing his FIFA 12 skills.

    hope this surgery for D Fletcher corrects his health issues and he is able to resume his career next season.

    • Mufc77 says:

      He’s done. Such a shame because he’s a model pro who was a total team player. At this point in time his long term health is more important than playing football.

  2. Todd Shenk says:

    I would have thought that Tony Fernandes could at least afford to upgrade to FIFA 13.

  3. IanCransonsKnees says:

    That and £70k per week.

  4. Prinz says:

    So Adkins is gone, great manager hope to see him in the prem soon. As for fletcher, i’ll wish him well even though he wasn’t 1 of fav players

  5. Mufc77 says:

    Once again Luis the racist Suarez shows his true colours and embarrasses LFC. Bill shankly will be turning in his grave at the way the clubs image has been dragged through the mud over the last 24 months.
