thumbnail Hello,

The R's striker admits that the Premier League is a world away from his time in Ligue 1, but despite initial difficulties, he insists he is relishing life in England

Loic Remy has paid tribute to manager Harry Redknapp's managerial style at QPR, despite the club looking increasingly doomed to relegation from the Premier League.

Remy has impressed in England since his big-money move from Marseilles, netting five times in just nine appearances, including a stunning strike against Wigan in his most recent game at Loftus Road.

And the France international insists he has Redknapp to thank for his seamless adaptation to the Premier League.

“He is very good, very good,” Remy told the club’s official website of his new boss. “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.”

But despite taking so well to the English top-flight, Remy reveals that football in England is a far cry from life in Ligue 1.

“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 added.

“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.”
