Unhappy Chelsea star admits he’s fed up of being on the bench

Posted by

Chelsea defender Abdul Baba Rahman has reportedly confessed to German publication Bild that he is frustrated with life at the club as he is bored of spending the majority of his time on the bench.

The 21-year-old arrived at Stamford Bridge over the summer from Bundesliga side Augsburg for a fee of £17million, but has so far struggled to establish himself in the first team on a regular basis.

He has so far featured just nine times in the league this season, and despite early promise has looked raw, but hasn’t made an appearance since since Guus Hiddink returned to take over at the club.

And he has now provided quotes highlighting the frustrating situation he finds himself in at the club.

“Of course it’s frustrating for any footballer to sit in the stands,” he said, “Its not something I’ve experienced a lot of.

“As a young player you have to to get used to it, and I have to get accustomed to life at a big club and this world-class league.

“In my view, the first half year was quite okay. But in the second half I will definitely play more.

“Chelsea are one of the best clubs in the world.”

Though his position is understandable, his comments are unlikely to curry favour amongst the decision makers at Stamford Bridge.
