Chelsea’s Marco van Ginkel is currently on loan at PSV Eindhoven having made just two first-team appearances for the Blues.

Van Ginkel signed in 2013 from Vitesse Arnhem and had had other loan spells at AC Milan and Stoke.

He was set for a big career in his first season at the club only for him to suffer a serious injury in just his second game for the club.

Van Ginkel hopes to break into Antonio Conte’s team next season and admits he’d have to look for another club if it wouldn’t be possible.

“There is a group [of loanees] that does have chance at Chelsea. I’ve been part of the selection already, so I have the confidence I will get back into it,” Van Ginkel told Goal.

“I watch them often. I try to watch almost every game of them. They are doing terrific and I think you could say they will clinch the title.

“When I was younger I watched English football all the time, but I didn’t support a specific club.

“Now Chelsea is my club, and so I cheer for them. The extra motivation to get back [to Chelsea] is always there. Not only because get into Champions League.

“Of course it’s nice to play matches in the Netherlands, it’s great. It’s nearby to your family and friends, but eventually you want to make the next step.

“If that’s not at Chelsea, then I might look for something else.”

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.
