Andersen signed a two-year contract to join Betis from Evian in the summer and he started the opening game of the new La Liga season against Real Madrid.
However, he was dropped to the bench for the subsequent matches against Celta Vigo and Espanyol, and does not know what he has done wrong.
"I haven't got any explanation from the coach why I did not get to play in the last two league matches," the Denmark international told BT.
"I played against Real Madrid and, personally, I felt that my display was reasonable and I also played in the Europa League match where we won 6-0 and I produced a good match.
"I am still happy for the move and I am happy to be there because it is a fantastic place. But I would, of course, have wanted to get more playing time in the beginning.
"But I do not know the reasons why I haven't played more than I have done."
Andersen does not feel a language problem is behind his omission, saying: "I don't believe that is the reason.
"I can communicate in Spanish in training and during the match. Obviously, I have got some problems in daily life, but there is no problem on the pitch."
