Chelsea striker Loic Remy has admitted that he could not turn down an opportunity to join the Blues.

The French international, who saw a move to Liverpool collapse before joining Chelsea a day before the end of the summer transfer window, believes he made the right decision.

Remy had some issues during his medical at Anfield, which saw a move to the Reds collapse, but there was also interest from Arsenal and Tottenham before the Stamford Bridge outfit stepped in to make an offer.

The 27-year-old striker admits that he was happy to remain at Loftus road with Queens Park Rangers, but when a team like Chelsea came calling, he did not hesitate for a second to accept the offer to play in west London.

"When opportunities like this happen, you cannot refuse. It happened late in life," Remy said, as quoted by the Express.

"In my head, I quite wanted to stay at QPR, but I did not hesitate for one second for many reasons.

"The move was for my improvement, for my confidence, in terms of level of demand. Chelsea is one of the best clubs in the world," the Frenchman remarked.

The French striker revealed that Blues boss Jose Mourinho had been clear regarding his role in the team and that he will not be first choice striker, but the player is confident that he can make a difference for the team and score important goals for the Premier League title favourites.

"I'm happy to have signed for a club like this. I know I'm not going to be the first striker, but nothing is set.

"I have goals. By signing at Chelsea, I did not say it was to stay on the sidelines. I will try to move up alongside great players. The rest will happen naturally," Remy added.
