Djilobodji: “I didn’t have a chance at Chelsea”

by -

Ex Chelsea defender Papy Djilobodji completed a £ 8m move to Sunderland last summer and insists that he wasn’t given a good chance at the Blues:

“I always said I wanted to play for a great club, make a nice career, and Chelsea is a great club There, I was doing all I could – I worked in training, I showed that I was an option. But I never got my chance, the coach never let me play.

“I want a little revenge, because at Chelsea, I never got my chance. I worked in training, and all went well. After that it depends on whether the coach likes you or dislikes you.”

“I always dreamed of playing in the Premier League but for me, now, the Chelsea page is turned, and I’m concentrating on Sunderland.”

Djilobodji has made five starts for the Black Cats since the club paid Chelsea £8m for his signature.
