Chelsea youngster Lucas Piazon has admitted he does not see the point of going out on loan every season after he complete his latest loan move to Fulham.
Piazon’s spell with the Londoners is his fifth loan away from Chelsea and has the option to extend the deal until the end of the season in January.
Chelsea have an astonishing 38 players out on loan at other clubs this season and Piazon has revealed he is fed up with being shipped out to play for other clubs.
‘I’m tired of moving abroad. One, two, three loans, maybe that’s enough. It’s time for me to stay somewhere for more than one year,’ said Piazon.
Piazon loan spells
Malaga (2012) -14 apps
Vitesse (2013-14) – 31 apps 11 goals
Eintracht Frankfurt (2014-15) – 23 apps 2 goals
Reading (2015-16) – 22 apps 5 goals
‘It makes no sense to go on loan all the time,’ he said. ‘It is not good for any player in my experience — or the experience of the other boys.
‘I don’t see it as a positive thing any more. To be in a different place every year is not good for me at 22.
‘It’s difficult to get a place in the team. They have their own players.
‘You do your best, try to get a place in the squad, minutes on the pitch, score and create goals. That’s all you can do.’
Piazon has spent time in Germany and Holland and was one of the hottest prospects in the world when he joined Chelsea as a teenager in 2012.
However, the Brazilian has revealed he has barely held a conversation with current coach Antonio Conte with football yet to be mentioned in their brief discussions.
‘We haven’t spoken much and we’ve said nothing about football,’ he said.
‘It’s difficult when there’s a big change. The Italian mentality is to train hard.
‘They arrived and then went to Austria and then to the USA. The players have found the training tough but they’re enjoying it.’
