The Nigeria international has been overlooked for Steve Sidwell so far this season.
Etuhu told the Fulham Chronicle: "It's very difficult if you only get 10 or 15 minutes. It's very hard to get involved in the game, especially in my position.
"At the end of the day I'm not playing much now and come January I'll look at that.
"I'm happy the team's doing well and if I don't get my chance I'll sit down with my people and have a chat about that.
"If I have to make some changes then I'll have to. I'm 29 and I want to enjoy my years."
