Marin keen to fight for Chelsea place

Chelsea midfielder Marko Marin claims he is not targeting a return to Bundesliga and told kicker that, although a January loan move is possible, he wants to stay at the club.

Marin, 23, has failed to seal a place in the Blues’ first-team since arriving for around €8 million in the summer and the German press has linked him with a return to his first club Borussia Moenchengladbach.

However, the former German international scotched talks of a move back to the Bundesliga and told kicker: “I have not held any talks. Returning to Bundesliga is not an issue - currently.”

Marin could yet still choose to leave Stamford Bridge on loan during the winter transfer period, but asserted his desire to stay and fight for his place.

“If I have the feeling, I’d get more games somewhere else and continue my development, a loan deal could be thinkable. On condition of Chelsea wanting that,” he added.

“I have not thought about leaving in the winter. I am of the opinion I am in good hands here. Therefore I will fully concentrate on Chelsea. And I believe the club would not just let me leave.

“It seems to be the case that it is my call [to leave or not]. I’d have to make the first step. Currently I am not thinking about that. I have signed for five years. To question everything after five months, and three months of injury, makes no sense.”
