Players Who Deserve More Game Time

There are players in football right now that should be enjoying their best days at their respective ages, but instead they’re just benchwarmers or ‘back-up’ to put it kindly. These players need to play!

The Fan Park crew lists five players who deserve more minutes on the field.

Petr Cech

The Chelsea man was shifted aside to make way for the young Thibaut Courtois, but we know that goalkeepers can play longer than outfielder can, and even at the age of 32, Petr Cech deserves a lot more time out on the field. His 10-year-old stand in Chelsea’s goal was a successful one, and I’m not saying that Jose Mourinho is wrong to not pick him, but I do feel that he needs a move away from Stamford Bridge for first team football.

Wojciech Szczesny

Another highly rated goalkeeper last season, and many before that, the 24-year-old needs to be given more game-time. Yes, he’s done some silly things, like smoking in the team’s changing room, but his talent is there for everybody to see. I feel that the Polish keeper desperately needs Arsene Wenger’s faith, as I feel he is one of the better keepers in the Premier League.

Asier Illarramendi

The Los Blancos midfielder has featured 21 times in the league for Carlo Ancelotti’s men, but almost all of those appearances have been from the bench. Although he gets about his business in a different manner to most Real Madrid players, the midfielder deserves appreciation for his work-ethic, and he deserves to play more!

Stevan Jovetic

Before the forward joined Manchester City, several clubs were showing interest in signing him, but his lack of opportunities under Manuel Pellegrini has been the main reason as to why his career has somewhat stalled. He’s got skill, pace, ball control and shows great determination, but maybe a move away from City will be the best move of his life.

Martin Montoya

The right-back has come from the youth academy at the Catalan club, but needs to be given more game time, and soon. He’s a traditional full-back, as he’s a great passer of the ball, a great tackler, and likes to make those dangerous overlapping runs. If Barcelona don’t utilise his talent, then Montoya needs to leave. There are many teams around Europe that would suit him. 

What other players do you believe deserve more game time?
