New blessing, Christopher Nkunku joins the observer during his convalescence period.
The physical problems just keep coming for Christopher Nkunku. Seriously injured in the very left during the pre-season, the French striker had to wait until December 19 and a League Cup match against Newcastle for his debut in the colors of Chelsea. But after only four short matches played, the former Parisian must already go back to the infirmary.
Hit in the hip, Christopher Nkunku is out of action against Middlesbrough In the semi-final return of the Coupe de la Ligue, Tuesday evening (1-0 defeat for the Blues). “Nkunku is not available,” coach Mauricio Pochettino said at the press conference and journalist: » It’s a shame. He is still recovering. It takes a little time to make the hip, but it is also ready to be reestablished. It’s not a big problem. This means that you can delay the possibility of having something new. »
Chelsea evasive about his injury…
In today’s press release, Chelsea did not say more about the duration of unavailability of their French striker. The London club is as precise as it is aimed at children “rehabilitation program”. A choice is sure: Christopher Nkunku continues the day of bad luck. And Euro 2024 with the Blues could well pass him by if he does not quickly regain a physical condition that allows him to express himself. Especially since the competition is, to say the least, rude in his position.
