CHANCES are Loic Remy will never find out what it’s like at Doncaster on a wintry night in November – but his QPR boss reckons the Frenchman should relish the opportunity.
The striker (pic) is on offer at £8m or a £2m one-year loan, but if neither favourites Spurs nor Newcastle pay the asking price, the forward goes straight back into the Championship mix.
Harry Redknapp reckons he’s been in this situation before, and with a much better player than the Frenchman.
The manager was in charge at Portsmouth when he had Robert Prosinecki playing for him a decade ago, and was amazed at the impact the Croatian ace had on English football's second tier.
Harry said: “There’s no reason Remy shouldn’t be ready for the Championship if he’s a proper player.
“I went to Barnsley with Robert Prosinecki and with no disrespect there’s no one here (at QPR) who could lace his boots. He was one of the best footballers I’ve seen in my whole life.
“This man was a genius, and he was at Real Madrid and Barcelona.
“I took him off with four minutes to go and the 14,000 Barnsley fans gave him a standing ovation.
“Good players can play anywhere. If you can’t play in this division – you’re not a top player.”
