Ba ready to fight for Chelsea place

17 September 2013 18:07

Chelsea striker Demba Ba is prepared to fight for his place after remaining at the London club.

The 28-year-old was heavily linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge in the transfer window, with former club Newcastle United and Arsenal said to be chasing his services.

Arsenal saw a loan move fall through at the last minute, though, leaving Ba, who only joined Chelsea in January, in limbo.

The competition for places has increased this season after 32-year-old Samuel Eto'o joined on a free transfer, giving manager Jose Mourinho multiple options, including Spaniard Fernando Torres.

And while Romelu Lukaku remains on loan – the Belgian is at Everton this season – Ba is likely to find it tougher to get game time for Chelsea this season.

Despite that, he is remaining positive.

"I told the manager if I stayed I would keep fighting for the club," he said. "Now it's about the next months and years with Chelsea.

"I'm a good professional and always work hard. I will keep doing the same.

"I want to play. It all depends on me and the performance I put in on the pitch. If I don't perform, it will be only my fault."
