Loic Remy: I didn't join to Chelsea to sit on the bench


Chelsea striker Loic Remy believes it was the right time to leave Queens Park Rangers.

The France international joined the Blues on the last few days of the transfer window and joins as a replacement for striker Fernando Torres who joined Milan on loan.

"Being at Chelsea is the perfect response to my critics," the striker is quoted as saying in The People.

"Many thought I'd fall into obscurity by joining QPR, but look at me now.

"I always try to make the best decisions for my career.

"I've come a long way from all my problems and that is not down to luck but hard work.

"My strength is that I know where I want to go and make the effort to get there.

"When the chance comes up to join a club like Chelsea you can't say no. The deal was done late in the evening.

"I was prepared to stay at QPR but I didn't hesitate for a second when Chelsea came along."

The striker knows it will not be easy to secure a regular place in Jose Mourinho's side but with the Blues involved in all competitions, the 27-year-old is determined to take his chances.

"I know I won't start out as first-choice striker at Chelsea, but nothing is set in stone. I have my aims," added Remy.

"I didn't sign for them in order to sit on the bench.

"I will try to improve as much as I can alongside their great players, and the rest will happen naturally."
