Atletico Madrid defender Toby Alderweireld reveals his frustration at his lack of first-team football this season.

Toby Alderweireld has admitted that he could be forced to depart Atletico Madrid if he fails to win a regular first-team spot with the Spanish outfit.

The Belgian international joined Atletico from Ajax in the summer, but has thus far been forced to play second fiddle to first-choice centre-back pairing Miranda and Diego Godin.

"I miss Ajax, their style of play, my ex-teammates... At Atleti, I can't be happy if I'm not playing," he told Sport-1.

"The team is doing well and I continue to fight for my place, but I don't think it's my fault."

The Belgian international has made just 10 appearances during his five months with the club.
