Chelsea star threatens to leave club
- Updated: October 9, 2018
Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen has hinted that he will leave the Stamford Bridge should his situation under new manager Maurizio Sarri not improve. The Dane has not played a single minute in the Premier League so far and has seen his playing time confined to the cup competitions.
As a result, the former Gladbach defender has admitted that this season has been hard for him and that he is running out of patience, because not only was he a starter in the last three seasons but he is also 22 and needs to be playing more regularly.
‘It has been a hard season. To be honest, it has been very difficult,’ Christensen said. ‘I can’t have so much patience again. Now I’m 22 years old and I really want to play.
‘In the last three seasons, I’ve played regularly with every team I’ve been with, so it’s clear that I do not see myself staying if my current situation remains the same. ‘
He then cleared that he doesn’t know when he should leave but that the situation isn’t good for him right now. He also praised the Italian tactician’s playing style but admitted his sadness at not being out on the pitch to execute the methods of the former Napoli coach.
‘It’s too early to talk about when to change or if I’m going to change. But it is clear that it is not a good situation for me.
‘I had looked forward to getting our new manager. We play really good football, explosively and offensively all you can wish for.
‘So that’s great, but it’s really annoying that I’m not on the pitch when it happens.’
The Blues has started their season brilliantly as Sarri’s men have accumulated 20 points from 8 games to be the joint leader of the Premier League alongside Liverpool and Manchester City.
