Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen has told Sky Sports that he is not expecting a January exit from Chelsea, although he’s not happy with his current situation at the club.
Christensen has struggled to get game time under Sarri, and even when he has, there have been lapses. He’s yet to feature in the Premier League this season.
This was not expected after the Denmark defender played 40 matches for Chelsea under Antonio Conte last season. However, when asked if his future was away from Stamford Bridge, he replied:
“Difficult question. No, I don’t think so.
“Things are different from last season. I played a lot of games [last season] but this season it hasn’t been like that. It’s always difficult for a player but we’ll see what happens.”
Last month, the defender and his father who is also his agent revealed that he might seek a move away from Chelsea in January if there was no improvement in his game time. However, he has admitted that a move away from Chelsea in January may not materialize.
“If you asked every player that’s not playing if they’re happy, they’re going to say no,” he said. “Everyone wants to play.
“I can’t do anything else but go back there, train and do my best. Every time I get that opportunity, I have to do well and show him that he can count on me.
“You don’t want to sit around and wait for it. You want to play straight away and that’s why we all play football.
“Not playing is not fun. It’s a different situation to last season.”
