Cork reveals Chelsea frustration

BY foxsports • February 21, 2010

The England Under-21 midfielder is currently on loan with the Clarets after finding himself well down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge. Cork has had six stints out on loan during his time at Chelsea with the defensive midfielder yet to play a senior game for the Blues. The 20-year-old, who is the son of former Wimbledon star Alan Cork, is hoping to impress at Burnley as he looks to establish himself at Chelsea. "It's been frustrating at Chelsea because I have had to keep going out on loan, and this is the first time I have gone to a Premier League club," Cork told The People. "John Terry is the biggest player there who has come through the ranks and done it, but apart from that it has been really hard for everyone. "I've been to Coventry, Southampton, Watford, Scunthorpe and Bournemouth before Burnley. "I've been living in hotels and apartments. It's been frustrating but I have enjoyed it. I've had some great experiences. "I knew what the score was as a professional footballer before I started playing because of my dad. "I've played in the Championship and if I do well at Burnley it is a good step for me, to try to break through at this level. "The loan market is so helpful for young players at Chelsea. Going on loan is the way it is going to have to be done."
