The 20-year-old’s concentration lies solely at Stamford Bridge.
Holland midfielder Marco Van Ginkel insists proving himself at Chelsea is more important than fulfilling his World Cup ambitions.
Van Ginkel arrived at Stamford Bridge from Dutch club Vitesse Arnhem early in the summer but will struggle to nail down a regular spot early on his Blues career, with boss Jose Mourinho earmarking him as a star for the future.
The 20-year-old has managed only two substitute outings so far this season and appreciates that his lack of first-team action will subsequently make it difficult to break into the senior Holland team and therefore isn’t getting his hopes of going to Brazil in 2014.
“I’m not really thinking about it,” London24 report him as saying to Voetbalprimeur.nl. “Maybe after the winter I will do more, but for now I am concentrating on Chelsea and the U21s.”
Van Ginkel, however, remains confident that confident Mourinho will deliver on his promise to give Chelsea’s youngsters more game time, saying: “That has been indicated to me,” he said. “I will get minutes. From the conversations I have had, they are coming.
“In my position, in the middle, there are four or five candidates at Chelsea. There is great competition, but you expect that at a top club.”
The Holland Under-21 skipper also appreciates that it would difficult for national team coach Louis Van Gaal to select him when he isn’t playing regularly for this club side.
“It is the policy of Van Gaal that you need to play if you are to be selected for the Dutch national team. That’s why I won’t just sit here,” he added.
