Ghana winger Christian Atsu expressed his displeasure over his lack of playing time at English Premier League newly-promoted side Bournemouth, where he is on loan from champions Chelsea.
The 23-year-old was loaned to Bournemouth this summer but he is yet to make his debut with the club, saying he is unhappy to stay on the bench.
"Of course I’m not happy I’m not playing in the Premier League because I came here to play,” Atsu was quoted as saying by Ghanasoccernet.com on Tuesday.
"Going out on loan is very difficult. You have to keep moving and taking your family with you and that is not easy. But that is the life, and you have to accept it."
Atsu, who was named 2015 Africa Cup of Nations best player, joined Chelsea in the summer of 2013 on a five-year deal.
He was loaned to Dutch side Vitesse Arnhem, before returning to the Premier League after signing a one-season loan deal with Everton, where he made five appearances last season.
