Loic Remy

By Dan King - Newcastle United Digital Editor

In his two games for Newcastle so far, one as a substitute and one from the start, Loic Remy has already made quite an impact on the supporters.

But the Frenchman, who is on a season-long loan from Queens Park Rangers, believes his best is yet to come as he continues to build up his match sharpness - and improve his English.

Although he arrived on Tyneside in early August, a calf injury meant he only made his first start at Aston Villa last Saturday after an electrifying appearance from the bench at Fulham in the previous match.

In between those two games was a two-week international break and Remy believes he has benefited from that extra time to get up to speed.

Speaking to nufcTV, the frontman said: "It was a good thing because I had time to work hard. I didn't do the pre-season, so for me it was important to work hard to be fit.

"Now I think I need two or three more games to be completely fit but I've felt very good on the pitch.

"We have a very good team and big quality in this team so for me it is important to enjoy every training session and every day."

Along with his fitness, Remy's grasp of the language has also been getting better and better and he believes that has translated well on the pitch.

He smiled: "I'm learning. It's not easy but I try to learn quick because I need to speak English.

"When I speak with my team-mates, I have to speak English so I'm taking lessons now."
