If you can be arsed read his version of why he is A.W.O.L. over on the BBC.
I do not agree with his behaviour but in terms of what it could mean for us, his main complaint is he feels Chelsea only want him back so they can further humiliate him.
He just seems to want to be guaranteed a place, he even suggested he cannot wait for the Atlético move forever.
He might even be alright on a loan until January so he gets a chance to stick it to Conte, I think he is likely both snidey and highly competitive enough to get off on that idea!
he just needs to be loved.
im sure he's a big softy at heart.
