CHELSEA boss Carlos Ancelotti is hoping Gael Kakuta gets more game time at Fulham – but has ruled out any move to recall the winger.
Kakuta has totalled only 46 minutes in three matches as a Fulham sub since his January switch from the other end of the Fulham Road, but Ancelotti insists Fulham manager Mark Hughes carries the can for the teenager's development until May.
"We hope Kakuta is involved in the next few games, but he will stay at Fulham until the end of the season and then come back to us," said the Italian.
"We have to have a respect and trust in Mark Hughes – and it’s his decision and his player."
The Whites boss reckoned that when he signed the 19-year-old in the winter transfer window he would use him only in ‘certain’ games.
"Some matches will suit Gael’s talents better than others," he added back then.
