Chelsea Striker Refuses To Commit Future To Blues

By on October 21, 2011

Chelsea forward Salomon Kalou has told the club he wants to be guaranteed more first team football before he commits his future to the west London club.

The Ivorian was expected to leave next summer when his contract expires, but manager Andre Villas-Boas revealed last week that negotiations had begun with the frontman over extending his deal. However, Kalou refused to commit his future to the Blues and has stressed the importance of regular game time, something he’s struggling to secure at Stamford Bridge.

“That’s what every player wants to have, game time,” said Kalou.

“Because if you’re not playing every weekend, how are you going to improve yourself?

“So it’s very important to play to improve and to push yourself to the limit.

“That’s what I’m looking for.”

Kalou did start the first two Premier League games under Villas-Boas but has been in the starting XI just once since, he added:

“We’re still talking and hopefully the club is putting itself in a good position and me myself as well.

“I think we’re going to agree on something good.

“I want to stay, I want to be here. I like Chelsea. I’ve had a fantastic five seasons here and won some prizes.

“Chelsea are looking forward to the future and I’m still a young player and I think my future can be here.”
