Cahill frustrated by Chelsea rotation

Gary Cahill has admitted he is unhappy with the rotation policy employed at Chelsea by manager Roberto Di Matteo, the Daily Mail has reported.

Cahill is ordinarily vying with David Luiz and John Terry for the two available places in the centre of the Chelsea defence, but Terry’s four-game ban has given the England international an extended run in the side, in domestic football at least.

Terry has missed two Premier League games - the win over Tottenham Hotspur and the defeat to Manchester United - and will be absent for the Capital One Cup match with the latter opponents and the league encounter with Swansea City next weekend.

But the Chelsea captain is available for the Champions League, and was drafted back into the side by Di Matteo when Chelsea player Shakhtar Donetsk last week. Cahill was the player to make way for Terry, as Chelsea fell to a 2-1 defeat in Ukraine.

Cahill said: “It has been frustrating for me at times this season, I’m not going to lie - like on Tuesday night in the Champions League. I think you can accept it if you are playing the same amount of games as everybody else. That’s the only way you can come to terms with it.
