Romelu Lukaku’s injury worried Chelsea fans last Wednesday (20) during Sweden’s 4-0 win over Malmö in the third round of the Champions League. The player was injured before the 20th minute of the match and was replaced by Kai Havertz, who also scored a goal of the game. Initially, the UK press believed the player should be out for about a month, but the athlete’s agent, Federico Pastorello, expects an early return.
During an interview with Sky Sports, the manager confirmed that the first images of the bid are worrying, but explained that the athlete has focused on accelerating his recovery. With a very positive expectation for Lukaku’s quick return, Pastorello highlighted that the Belgian striker’s body type counts positively for a speedy recovery.
? Photos and videos of the injury reveal that the ankle position is actually under body weight, but Lukaku is strong and really wants to play every sport. I am sure it will come back strong soon. He is very focused on his recovery, he is working with his personal physiotherapist and we hope to be back soon. Was he really sad about what happened, because he was playing a good game? An interview with Sky Sports highlighted the manager, as well as saying he was concerned about the injury.
? I was very worried because Romelu is a player who really wants to play and the fact that he was on the field for so long after the penalty was not a good sign. I stood next to Petr Cech and told him I was afraid because Romelu isn’t up to making fake scenes. Let’s wait for the exams now to know something more concrete soon shall we? Federico Pastorello eliminated.
Chelsea lead the Premier League on 19 points and will play against Norwich City at 8:30 am (GMT) next Saturday (23) to maintain the lead in the competition. Lukaku would be embezzled for coach Thomas Tuchel, as would Timo Werner, who suffered an injury against Malmö.
