Chelsea outcast targets return claiming “unfinished business”

Published on


A big-money move from Leicester in the summer of 2017 for Danny Drinkwater seemed not to work for the England international. The Chelsea outcast targets return claiming he still has “unfinished business” in Thomas Tuchel’s team.

Drinkwater plans to force his way into the Blues next season and he is optimistic for “things to turn around” in regards to his Chelsea career.

Since joining Chelsea in a £35million transfer from Leicester, he has only managed 28 appearances for the Blues. The midfielder time at Chelsea has witnessed him being sent on loan, having played for Burnley and Aston Villa before he joined the Turkish Super Lig club Kasimpasa on January for a six-month deal.

While speaking to  Elmatch Program, Drinkwater said:

“I want to continue with Chelsea. I feel like I have unfinished business with this club.

“I don’t know if it is a good idea to go back to Chelsea and start declaring these things. I have got a long way to go.”


“I have to try and start enjoying my football again because in this moment it has disappeared.

“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.”

Speaking on why his move to Chelsea never worked as he had expected, Drinkwater said: 

“It was a big price tag at the time but I felt it was exciting,” he said. “It was a new change, I felt I could play and show my worth. I just think it was a lack of chances.

“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.”
