two months ago came Thomas Delaney home to landsholdslejren after a difficult start of the season in Dortmund, where he sat much on the bench. On Monday, reiterated it.
Midtbanekrigeren have returned home after a very problematic time, where he sat on the bench the past four games. Zero minutes on the pitch.
In september he took a chat with national coach Åge Hareide about his situation. He has not yet felt the need to this time. But despite bænketilværelsen in Dortmund he has come to Denmark with the expectation of playing in both matches. For Delaney have fresh legs and feel in fine constitution.

- It is clear, that it here is not optimal. But I'm convinced that it's going to change soon again. I am not at all satisfied with the to go in the four matches without getting playing time, he says.
Now hope Delaney, to the two international matches against Gibraltar and Ireland can help to bring him back on track in klubholdet.
I go and hope a little of the same development as when I came home in september after landskampene. Here I came in and played a longer period of time.
- the Challenge right now is that we rarely switch around a lot on the central midfield. The coach runs very much the same team without so much rotation. It is nice when you play, points out Thomas Delaney, who has spoken with his coach, Lucien Favre, on the current situation.

- Right now, he thinks he (coach Lucien Favre), that my competitors are in a better flow. I don't agree with him. But it is his job to put the team, and I'm not the only one who is sitting on the bench. Such is the premise now even in a topklub, says Thomas Delaney with a wry smile.
Dortmund are currently down in sixth place in the Bundesliga, just two points from second place, but it is disappointment and frustration that characterize things right now in the German traditionsklub.
- It is not good enough, where we are right now. The distance to the league leaders is too great. Conversely, we tried in the last season to be the number one very early. It was absolutely no advantage for us, points out Thomas Delaney.
