Sylvain Distin admits things are a struggle at Portsmouth, but he will not get mad about it.

The French defender admits Pompey are not having the best of times at the moment.

He also points to the fact that the club have sold the likes of Lassana Diarra and Jermain Defore in the last month.

"We are not in a comfortable situation," he told L'Equipe.

"We had a great season last year, and we started again with a lot of ambition. The club was stable, and then everything collapsed.

"Now we don't have good results. We lost four great players, but the club doesn't have the financial means to get reinforcements.

"The situation is vague. One day the club is to sell, the next day it is not the case anymore.

"We should have a new stadium, a new training centre, but we don't have anything yet. We don't know where we are going, no one tells us anything.

"I have not joined that club to fight for salvation. Anyway, it is useless to have a bad mood, we just have to fight to save the club."
