Chelsea midfielder Lucas Piazon has climbed down over a disparaging attack on his parent club.
A statement has since appeared on Piazon’s facebook page denying the original comments and claiming he still wants a future at Stamford Bridge.
It said: “The career path set by the club, in total agreement with the athlete, is that Piazon plays for other clubs to acquire more experience before joining definitively the list of Blues.
“This, by the way, is part of Chelsea’s strategy and with other young Brazilians and also athletes of other nationalities.
“There is the possibility of a new loan for next season as part of the final phase of preparation Piazon.
“Since his arrival in London, Chelsea have never considered selling Piazon, despite having received several inquiries from several Premier League clubs in the last two years.
“Piazon prefers to be loaned again to have more playing time and return to London much more prepared. If he stayed now with the Blues, he would have little chance of playing regularly.”
