Loic Remy still ‘hopeful’ of playing for Chelsea at Man United
Loïc Remy hopes to play at Manchester United despite limping off on Tuesday
Loic Remy insists that he still harbours hope of being fit for Chelsea’s trip to Manchester United on Sunday, despite suffering a muscular injury on Tuesday.
The French forward was forced off after scoring the opener in Chelsea’s 6-0 thrashing of Maribor in the Champions League at Stamford Bridge.
Manager Jose Mourinho had initially suggested that Remy would be out for two to three weeks, but the player himself is still hopeful of featuring at Old Trafford.
“We will see with the scan,” ITV Sport quotes Remy as saying.
“I really hope it is not too bad. Fortunately I stopped playing because I felt something. I don’t think it is too bad but I felt something. My groin.
“Yes, it’s frustrating of course because I had a chance to play because Costa is injured but I am not afraid.
“I don’t think it is really bad. We will check and I really hope to play again this weekend.”
