Brazilian Sent On Loan Again
Chelsea midfielder Lucas Piazon says he will look to leave Stamford Bridge if he isn’t considered for selection by the Premier League side.
The Brazilian joined Chelsea from Sap Paulo in 2011 but has made just three first-team appearances the last of which came in 2012.
Since then he has had loan spells at Malaga, Vitesse, Eintracht Frankfurt, Reading, Fulham and Chievo before he joined Portuguese side Rio Ave on a two-year deal earlier this month.
“My time at Chelsea is already over,” he told Portuguese newspaper A Bola. “I’m 25, I’ve been on loan several times. I’ve been at Chelsea since 2011, I’ve been on loan almost all over Europe.
“I’m tired of playing here and there, I need a place where I can feel at home. I want to know that in July I will return to the same place, to the same house.
“I’d have a good season on loan, but I’d come back and was soon loaned again. There was no point in going out on loan, playing well, coming back, not being used and being loaned again.
“There comes a time in your career that makes no sense anymore. By the way, I said exactly that three years ago and it didn’t go so well at Chelsea, it generated some discomfort.”
Despite his comments, Piazon signed a two-year contract extension with Chelsea during the summer. He is now under contract at Stamford Bridge until 2022.
