France defender William Gallas claims he is fed up with switching positions.
Chelsea defender William Gallas claims he is fed up with switching positions for France.
The Blues star is less than pleased with coach Raymond Domenech and is frustrated at playing in three different positions against Costa Rica in midweek.
"I am happy with the win for the team," he said. "But, on a personal level, it is becoming a big frustration because, in the end, there is no happiness.
"I am fed up.
"I need to settle. I am keen to play in a position that is not mine, but I can't change twice in a single match.
"I can't be just satisfied by playing.
"I need to settle to go on improving. I can't go any further being dragged along that way."
Meanwhile, it has been confirmed that Lyon defender Eric Abidal will be out for several months after suffering a real setback in Martinique against Costa Rica.
The 26-year-old has undergone scans that revealed the foot he fractured is injured again and he will be missing for around 12 weeks.
A Lyon specialist is to advise an operation to enable a pin to be inserted into the bone.
Abidal has been first choice at left back for Domenech in Les Bleus' line-up.
