Midfielder Cesc Fabregas has once again spoken of his frustration with his bit-part role at Chelsea this season with Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri preferring Jorginho as Chelsea’s deep-lying playmaker.
Fabregas has largely been restricted to run outs in the EFL Cup and Europa League and has started just one Premier League this season, Chelsea’s 2-1 loss at Wolves.
“I know what my role is,” Fabregas said. “Unfortunately it’s not the one I want. I’m keeping it professional as usual.
“I’m always trying to do my best, in the conditions, playing with the youngsters, playing with the first team, even though this year I still haven’t played with the full, full first team one game.
“But, I’m trying to do what I can. It’s a difficult situation for me, obviously.”
Despite his frustration, Fabregas insists talk of him leaving Chelsea is premature. He has been linked with a transfer to AC Milan.
“We’ll see what happens. It’s too early to talk about this now,” Fabregas added.
“I don’t give up. I’m not someone who you’ll see complaining or not giving his all because of that.
“I’ll always be there showing my face when needed and if the time comes the time comes.”
Fabregas has been at Chelsea since joining from Barcelona in 2014 and his contract will expire at the end of the season.
