Chris Kamara believes Liverpool would have been in a far more better position than currently if they had signed Loic Remy over the summer rather than Mario Balotelli, who has been misfiring at the moment.
Liverpool were linked heavily with French striker Remy over the summer after his impressive loan spell at Newcastle United, but after agreeing a fee with Queens Park Rangers, the move fell though due to a medical.
The former Marseille striker has since revealed he does not understand why the move fell through but is happy at his new club Chelsea with the Blues pouncing to sign him after a move failed.
Since joining the current league-leaders, Remy has scored two goals and Kamara has said he believes the Frenchman would have been a far better fit for Liverpool than Balotelli.
“When they signed him people said give him a chance but knowing Brendan Rodgers’ formation and game plan, you could see that Balotelli wouldn’t fit given that he’s a static striker.”
“But what everyone seems to have forgotten is Liverpool’s attempted signing of Loic Remy. Remy failed his medical at Anfield and things could’ve been very different had he signed.”
“Unfortunately for Liverpool, Chelsea have been the beneficiaries of that situation, as shown by his Champions League goal in midweek.”
“The club, and we as fans and pundits, can now reflect on what might’ve been and how things could’ve been different had Rodgers landed his first choice striker.”
