Fit-again playmaker Steven Pienaar isn't content with a spot on the bench for Tottenham Hotspur and is keen to contribute to the club's impressive start to the season.
Despite begin knocked out of the League Cup, Harry Redknapp's side have lost just one of their last thirteen games, which sees them fifth in the Barclays Premier League and within a win of the knock-out stage of the Europa League.
All this has been achieved without Pienaar, injured in pre-season with Spurs, featuring in the team and the South African isn't happy with his stop-start Tottenham career.
"It's depressing," Pienaar said. "The team is playing well and getting results, which is satisfying," he said. "But if you're not playing you don't have a hand in helping the team and as a player you always want to be part of a team that's doing well.
"If you're not part of it, it's like getting your money without doing anything. But I will definitely get my chance. There are a lot of games this season and you just have to be patient.
"There's no way the team will perform at this level for the whole season. You just have to wait.
"You don't wish anyone to get injured, so I'll just have to wait for my chance and I believe it will come."
