Forgotten Chelsea striker Loic Remy’s Stamford Bridge career might not be over just yet after the player netted a brace in an 8-2 behind-closed-doors pre-season friendly win over Sky Bet Championship club Fulham at Cobham on Saturday afternoon.
The 30-year-old French frontman has not featured for The Blues in a competitive match since a 4-0 victory over Aston Villa at Villa Park in early April 2016 and the player spent an injury-hit loan spell with Crystal Palace last season after failing to impress new Chelsea boss Antonio Conte.
Remy’s Chelsea career looked to be over however a double for Conte’s men in the 8-2 victory over their West London rivals at Cobham may have fired a reminder to his manager of his ability.
Blues boss Conte has endured another difficult summer in the transfer market with the club so far failing to land any of their attacking targets. Last season’s top scorer Diego Costa has long been linked with a Stamford Bridge exit while no replacement has yet been found for the controversial goal machine.
Out of favour striker Remy is unlikely to be classed as a direct replacement for Costa however the Frenchman could yet find himself back in the first team picture should he continue to show a positive attitude towards the club, training and his manager.
