The Blues boss appears set on a defensive pairing of David Luiz and Antonio Rudiger
Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen admits his lack of game time is ‘hard’ to take but insists he has not considered a January departure.
The Danish centre-back enjoyed a breakthrough campaign last season and was named Chelsea‘s Young Player of the Year after making 27 Premier League appearances.
However, he is yet to appear in England’s top flight since Maurizio Sarri took over in the summer with Antonio Rudiger and David Luiz the new manager’s preferred partnership.
Now Christensen, 22, has broken his silence on his new life on the fringes of the first team – and admits he is finding it tough.
He told Danish outlet Bold: “Right now, it’s not a good season for me, but I have to find some way to get back on. How? I do not know, but it’s up to myself to figure out.
“But right now it looks hard. We have good results and we play super good football, which only makes it harder. It’s hard for me personally, but for the team it looks great.”
But, when asked whether he may consider exploring the chances of leaving when the transfer window opens, he said: “I do not know. I have not thought so, so I do not want to comment on that.”
