Since making the switch from Bournemouth to Chelsea, Nathan Ake has only played two games and is yet to play in the Premier League for the league leaders.

The 21-year-old was a regular during his loan spell at Bournemouth, but Chelsea cut short his contract, and he returned to his parent club as injury worries threatened Antonio Conte’s winning team.

Fellow Dutchman Marco van Ginkel who’s currently on loan with PSV, has revealed that Ake is disturbed by his lack of game time.

“There was a certain pride when he was called back by Chelsea,” Van Ginkel told Goal.

“He returned to Chelsea and it was going well for him at Bournemouth. Perhaps I would have stayed there [at Bournemouth].

“There might have been a clause in his contract and Chelsea bought him back on those terms.

“Now he’s often in the stands and not on the bench. I talk to him about it on a regular basis.

“Yes, he’s fed up [but that’s normal]. First you play every game and then you only train. That’s not your aim.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
