Christensen Explains Why He Has Reconsidered His Chelsea Future

Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen says he is happy to stay at Stamford Bridge after being afforded more game time by manager Maurizio Sarri in recent months.

The 22-year-old struggled to get a look in earlier in the season with Antonio Rudiger and David Luiz favoured as the club’s preferred centre-back pairing by the Italian.

Christensen has, though, been selected to play in the Europa League and has also started matches against Huddersfield and Fulham in the Premier League over the past couple of months.

Asked about his playing time whilst on international duty with Denmark, the centre-back responded:

“Right now it’s one day at a time. Especially because I have now started to focus on, I get my matches. Then I will continue to show myself. Right now I’m just focused on the games I get. [Now] I finally have a game almost every week for the first time in the season.

“Right now I enjoy it, and it is clear that we have got a transfer ban, which I don’t think is going to mean much to me. But that is not something I think about.”

As Christensen mentions, with the transfer ban in place, Chelsea would likely refuse to sell him in the summer regardless of his playing situation.

With Gary Cahill leaving on a free transfer, and David Luiz’s contract situation still unresolved, the Dane will be hoping for more game time heading into next season.
