QPR ace Remy almost never took up football

QPR signing Loic Remy admits he was only convinced about football by a family neighbour.

Remy was only encouraged to become a footballer by his neighbour after his father left the family home.

He explained: "It's thanks to my neighbour that I became a professional.

"He used to watch my matches, he used to correct me, sometimes he'd have a go. It proved to be lucky for me. I was quite frustrated by the lack of a father.

"I had no one to pass the ball around with, no one to talk football with, who would have pushed me all the time to apply myself. I took charge of myself. That's life."
