Calling the shots: Loic Remy

Striker Loic Remy is the latest member of the squad to talk us through a selection of snaps from his personal Instagram account.

The Frenchman picks out memorable moments for club and country, as well as some special family images...

 

'I found this picture in my house recently and it was taken when I was three or four. The story behind it is that I couldn’t go to school without my bow-tie. Every day my mum would dress me up and if I didn’t have it I would be crying and going mad. I tried to be smart even when I was young. My mum used to say I had all the girls around me because of my bow-tie.'

 

'This was the France squad announcement for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. It was a very proud moment for me, the chance to represent my country at the biggest competition in football, and in Brazil as well. It’s one of my best memories in football.'

 

'This was after my first game for Chelsea against Swansea when I scored a debut goal. At the end of the game, the captain and legend John Terry came up to me, gave me a hug and congratulated me. It was a special goal, my first for the club. I’d only been on the pitch a short while and to score on your debut makes you feel so confident.'

 

‘We won the title in my first season at Chelsea and this photo is very representative of that time because I was really close to Kurt Zouma. I really like this picture. I’m still in touch with Kurt. When I came back in the summer everybody was joking around saying he hadn’t been the same since I was away, he’s a very good friend. It’s been tough for him with the bad injury he had but now he has a great opportunity at Stoke and I’m sure he will do well.’

 

'This is my girlfriend and baby when we went to Martinique, where I’m from, on holiday. This was only in June. It was the first time my son had visited Martinique so it was very special. His name is Ethan and he’s 19 months old now.'
