Borgetti Seeks Assurance

Last updated : 09 January 2006 By Matt Bottom

Borgetti has stated he does not want to leave Bolton, but admits he is getting increasingly frustrated by his lack of playing time in the Premiership.

"I'm just waiting for Sam Allardyce to give me a chance to start games in the Premiership," he said.

"I want to stay in Bolton but this year is the World Cup and I need to be playing.

"Not playing is not good for me. Ten games is nothing, it's not good for me, it's not good for the national team and it's not good for the people of Mexico.

"It would be better if I could stay in Bolton and play, but that might have to change, if the gaffer says I won't be playing in the Premiership.

"I need to speak to him and ask him why I don't. No big deal, I just need to know.

"The people in Mexico are saying 'Come back home.' But I'm here and I'm just trying to take advantage of the opportunities."

Bolton manager Sam Allardyce said, "He won't be loaned to anybody at all,"

"If somebody makes an offer we consider might be correct, from our point of view, and the player is interested, we may consider it.

"Other than that, there is no way Jared is moving from this football club."

Meanwhile, Sam Allardyce has explained why the former France international Martin Djetou, left the club late on Friday afternoon.

"His contract had come to an end and we needed to make a decision by the 7th (of January), whether we were going to keep him or not," he said.

"I felt that, because he hadn't played as big a part as I thought he was going to do, it would be better if we released him and used the money somewhere else, towards a player who can produce a bit more for us.

"He's a fantastic guy and a super professional but he needs to go and play football at his age and I didn't see that happening here."
