Chelsea faces a tough season marked by poor sporting results and a growing list of injuries. The latest victim to join this list is Roméo Lavia, one of the summer’s star signings, whose fall to an ankle injury has caused concern at Stamford Bridge.
Lavia, whose signing cost Chelsea 60 million euros in August, has not yet had the opportunity to make his debut with the Blues due to his physical problems. According to reports from the ‘ Daily Mail ‘, the young Belgian midfielder has experienced a relapse of his ankle injury, which will keep him off the field, at best, until the end of November.
Lavia’s first injury occurred during a training session led by coach Mauricio Pochettino. Just when he was getting closer to recovering, unfortunately, he has fallen into the same trap again. The player had shown signs of improvement by removing his protective boot and beginning rehabilitation exercises in the pool, but all of that has been thwarted by this fall.
He won’t be back until the end of the year.
Pochettino had anticipated the duration of Lavia’s injury before the match against Burnley, in which Chelsea won 1-4. The Argentine coach stated that he could not provide an exact return date and suggested that after the international break, the young midfielder would not be ready to return to action.
