Chelsea defender should go on loan, according to his national team coach

Dean Mouhtaropoulos

The Czech national team coach would like to see one of his potential players get more time on the pitch

Czech national team coach Pavel Vrba was in London recently, checking up on a few of his potential players. While talking predominantly about Petr Cech and Tomas Rosicky, the coach also had a few things to say about Tomas Kalas:

"Tomas is dissatisfied with the fact that he has played very little at Chelsea. Now, maybe, it's more a matter of finding a club where he gets a better chance.  Chelsea appreciate him and the future certainly counts, but now might not be bad time to turn somewhere else like he did in the past."

Kalas impressed Jose Mourinho enough during the preseason to earn a place with the Chelsea first team, but a broken bone early on meant that opportunities to play were bound to be somewhat limited without some of Chelsea's other defenders suffering injury. Luckily, the defensive unit has managed to stay mostly healthy this season, which has unfortunately meant very few appearances for the Czech defender.

Obviously, the Czech head coach would also certainly prefer he sees more time on the pitch. Pushing for a loan makes some sense from his regard, as Chelsea's interests mean nothing to him. That's not to say the move wouldn't make sense for Chelsea as well, but any comment Vrba will be making on the subject are likely going to reflect the best interests of the Czech national team.

I'd also be fairly hesitant to start assuming that Kalas isn't happy at Chelsea, as a translated quote speaking about someone else's desires really shouldn't be used to tell us anything about what the player is thinking. Again, anything Vrba says should be taken with the fact that he's got his own agenda here. That probably won't stop some of the finer publications around though, as 'discontent' in the Chelsea dressing room sells.
