Danny Drinkwater has sent a message to the Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchel that he has “unfinished business” at the club.
The on-loan Chelsea midfielder hopes for one more chance under Tuchel amid the end of his Kasimpasa six-month loan deal. Drinkwater has played just 28 times in the four years since his move from Leicester City.
Reports claim the Former Blues boss Frank Lampard sanctioned the loan move in January hopefully Danny will get playtime.
“If he plays games, plays regularly, he’ll feel better, then we can cross that bridge when it comes to the end of the season about where that takes us forward for Danny and for ourselves,” Lampard said back in January.
Danny Drinkwater hopes he can force his way back into Thomas Tuchel’s plans at Chelsea and impress the German. He believes he could still have a future at the club.
“I want to continue with Chelsea. I feel like I have unfinished business with this club,” Drinkwater said.
He added, “I would like to think so. I have to try and start enjoying my football again because in this moment it has disappeared.”
Danny continued, “I keep working hard, I keep grafting and I am doing the right things at the right times and I need to stay injury-free and see where it takes me. It is a short career so I need to keep doing the right things and hope things turn around.”
Also, Drinkwater claims the lack of opportunities in the line-up has hampered his chances of repaying the £35million fee.
“It was a big price tag at the time but I felt it was exciting,” the former Leicester Midfielder said.
“It was a new change, I felt I could play and show my worth. I just think it was a lack of chances,” he claimed.
“My time at Chelsea has been nothing but frustrating. It is a weird position that I am in. It is definitely different but I don’t think I am the first, nor will I be the last. This is part of football,” Danny admits.
