Midfielder future fears


Yossi Benayoun admits he is facing an uncertain future but says he will return to Chelsea before a decision is made.

The midfielder has spent the season on loan at Arsenal and although he has struggled with injury during his time at the Emirates Stadium, Arsene Wenger may still pursue a permanent move.

Benayoun has started the last two games for the Gunners and scored in last night’s 3-0 win at Wolves, but he is still unsure what the future holds and has not ruled out forcing his way in at Stamford Bridge.

“I think it is difficult to speak now about the future,” he told the London Evening Standard. “It is better to concentrate on the five weeks that are left and do my best for the club. I am fully committed to Arsenal and after we will see.

“After 30th June, I am going back to Chelsea and then the club and I need to decide. Each one has to think what is best for them. I will not lie, I love Chelsea, because I have a good relationship there. I didn’t play much, because I had a big injury.

“I still have a lot of friends there I talk to every day. Of course I want them to do well, but it is difficult.”
