Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen has apparently told Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri that he would be forced to leave the club if he is not handed more first-team opportunities.
The Dane established himself as a key man in defense for the Blues under Antonio Conte last season but has been relegated to the background under Maurizio Sarri.
The player’s chances at the club appear to have been affected by Sarri’s reversal to 2 center-backs as against Conte’s system which fielded 3.
David Luiz who was relegated to the bench last season under Conte has also moved above Andreas Christensen on the pecking order under Sarri who prefers the duo of Rudiger and the Brazilian.
The Denmark international has found regular first-team action in the Premier League had to come by this season and has had to settle for games in the Europa League and Carabao Cup competition.
The player has now openly admitted that there is the likelihood of a move away from Chelsea if the situation does not improve.
“It has been a hard season. To be honest, it has been very difficult,” Christensen told bt.dk.
“I had a good season last year and I played a good World Cup.
“I cannot stand to have so much patience again. Now I am 22-years-old and I really want to play. In the last three seasons, I’ve played, so it is clear that I do not see myself staying if my current situation is also true of the future.
“It is too early to talk about when to change if I am going to change. But it is clear that it is not a good situation for me.”
