Bench role fails to please Cabaye

08 October 2014 08:42:19 EST

Former Newcastle United and France international midfielder Yohan Cabaye has admitted that he far from satisfied with his current role at Paris St Germain.

The 28-year-old has made 28 appearances for PSG since his switch from the Magpies in January, but half of those outings have come as a substitute, a role which Cabaye is unaccustomed to.

He told L'Equipe: "You have to accept being a substitute, but I don't resign myself to that. In training sessions, I have to give my best and show my desire to play.

"When I am on the pitch, I feel it is not perfect and that I often have to leave too soon. But I know the coach and staff have to make choices and I respect that.

"Have I spoken to Laurent Blanc? No. What do I tell him? I am 28 years old and not new to the job. But I am not satisfied with the situation.

"Am I completely happy? To be honest, no. It is a new situation for me, but I don't complain. It is the first time I haven't played regularly for my club."

PSG are currently third in Ligie 1, seven points adrift of leaders Marseille, despite being unbeaten in nine games.

Blanc's side have drawn six of their nine games and can be backed at 1/1 to win the French league title, with Marseille 1/1 and Bordeaux 1/1.
