Andreas Christensen has said that he is happy over his future at Stamford Bridge.
It’s understood that Christensen became a bit frustrated when he could not break through the starting eleven under Maurizio Sarri.
As Sarri had already made his mind on David Luiz-Antonio Rudiger pairing in Chelsea’s line of defence and showed no indications to do any experiment with the pairing.
Hence, the 23-year-old had to maintain patience on the bench and for a chance to come his way.
With Rudiger suffered from a knee injury and ruling him out of entire season, Christensen stepped in to make his mark for the Blues.
The Dane international looked confident and positive during Chelsea’s Europa League final win over Arsenal and showing the world what a good player he is.
Whether it was the high number of appearances he made at the business end of the season, or the other small factors that contributed to this decision, he’s now happy to stay.
Christensen said in an interview with Jyllands-Posten: “I’m not wondering about my future now, and I haven’t done that for some time. I’m happy to be in London, and with the way the season has evolved, there’s no reason to think about it anymore.”
“I played two seasons in the Bundesliga and a season stuck in Chelsea, and after all, I’m only 23 years old, so it’s probably very wise to stay. It’s nice that there is peace and quiet, and I can concentrate on playing football.”
Frank Lampard is most likely to take the job at the Stamford Bridge, and if he comes, he should recognise Christensen ability to play.
He has proved himself and should start in the starting lineup as a pre-assumption starter.
