Gary Cahill: “I want to be here”

by -

Chelsea and England defender Gary Cahill states how he wants to stay at the club and play in a higher percentage of matches.

Cahill, 30, was rumoured to be on his way out in January, even after signing a new four-year contract in December due to a lack of playing time. But has recently spoke about the positive discussions about his future he has had with interim boss Guus Hiddink.

“He was very approachable and it was beneficial, very positive.”

“Obviously, I want to be at the club,” he told Chelsea’s Official website “I signed a contract a couple of months ago so that shows I want to be here.

“But ultimately, I feel like I need to play football matches. I’ve always been that way; it’s always been in my make-up to play a high percentage of games.

“I realise sometimes things go well, sometimes they don’t, but it’s very important for me to play football matches.”

Cahill has not started a Premier League game in 2016.
