It is not often that you get a chance to play for club like Chelsea and losing that chance can only be depressing as one young player seemed to have learnt this season.
Serbian mid-fielder Danilo Pantic who is officially a Chelsea player is out on loan at Vitesse but is understood to be unhappy with the proceedings in Netherlands.
Having made just 6 substitute appearances and with no starts, Pantic is not happy with his situation at the club and is hoping to cut short his loan spell with the Eredivise outfit.
Pantic was highly rated in his previous stints at Holland but has failed to catch the imagination at the club and failed to make a break through along with 4 other Chelsea youngsters at Vitesse in the past.
However, the reason the 19-year old gave for the lack of his game time at Vitesse was rather unappealing.
Pantic said that he will not be given enough time on the field because the club, “don’t like Serbs.”
Serbian newspaper Blic spoke to the 19-year old who opened about his situation in Holland.
“I want to come back to Chelsea, just to train,” Pantic told Serbian newspaper Blic.
Pantic is naturally frustrated to be warming the bench at the Eredivise club and rightly wants to train with his parent club who have been in extra-ordinary form after the turn of the year.
“Why am I in Vitesse if I am not good enough? I am crazy! I’ve made no mistakes. If I had a chance and blew it, I would keep quiet,” he added.
“Maybe in Vitesse they don’t like us Serbs: Nemanja Matic did not get a chance here either and Uros Djurdjevic played 22 matches in a year and a half.
A number of Chelsea youngsters are loaned out to Vitesse but none of them have been able to make a breakthrough into the starting XI and Pantic felt that there was something wrong with the club.
“There are five of us here at Vitesse from Chelsea [Dominic Solanke, Isaiah Brown, Lewis Baker and Nathan are the others] and none of us are playing. That means something is wrong.”
