Emenalo echoed your sentiment on talksport radio at -8:25 min mark here: https://talksport.com/football/I-needed-new-challenge-michael-emenalo-dismisses-claims-fall-out-over-transfers-led-chelsea 

As for Christensen, the maturity of his game is quite incredible for his age and reminds me more of Ricky Carvahlo than JT in his overall play. However, Christensen needs to work on those offensive headers - he'd have had at least 3 goals by now.

Nice interview. I like his explanation about a memory bank of performances in regard to loaned players and it makes sense.

Brilliant news. With the exception of Hazard, this is the single best signing we could have made this Jan

Really pleased about this.  Very glad that he's sticking around,  looks like he's going to be a terrific centre-back.

Nice to lock such a talented defender down long term. Hopefully he continues to progress and becomes a key player in years to come.

I'm starting to worry a lot about Christensen. He's annoyed he isn't first choice? 

I'd say he's pretty far from being first choice at the minute. He's sloppy in possession, slow and cumbersome and makes far too many mistakes.

I think the problem with Christensen was that the irrational manager we previously had dropped the far better player and excluded him from the squad in order to play him regularly - even as he constantly churned out 6/10 performances, he was never dropped. Then, he comes back this season and, instead of improving, he is still churning out 6/10 performances.

Agreed. He seems to be the continued weakest link when he plays, last Thursday in particular. And now he is causing disruption in the squad.  Maybe time to get rid.

I wouldn't take it too seriously.  On International weeks these kind of comments are always coming out when domestic Danish TV interview plays not starting in the Prem.  Of course they want to stake a claim for the international team, and part of that is saying they wouldn't accept sitting on the bench because "their international careers are so important".

He has to state some frustration.

Plus it is a google translate, so nuances may have been lost.
