Chelsea defender Gary Cahill has admitted to being unhappy with Roberto Di Matteo’s rotation policy.
The Italian manager has been rotating David Luiz, Gary Cahill and John Terry in the heart of defence, with two of the three players always in the starting line-up.
Luiz and Cahill will get a longer run in the side now that Terry is serving a four-match ban in the Premier League, but the former Bolton stopper is not entirely happy with the amount of playing time this season.
“It has been frustrating for me at times this season, I’m not going to lie – like on Tuesday night in the Champions League, the rotating,” Cahill told Sunday Mirror.
“I think you can accept it if you are playing the same amount of games as everybody else. That’s the only way you can come to terms with it.”
Cahill joined Chelsea in an €8.4 million deal from Bolton in January 2012 and made 10 Premier League appearances last season.
He has scored 2 goals in 5 Premiership games this term, while also netting in the UEFA Super Cup.
The player has also fallen behind Phil Jagielka and Joleon Lescott in the pecking order in the national team, which is probably his biggest concern at the moment.
