Albania manager Sylvinho reveals that Armando Broja was injured before turning up to international duty. Sylvinho told FCInterNews that the youngster was still feeling the effects of his long-term injury before international break. It was a report last week that Broja is returning to Stamford Bridge after being unable to play European Championship qualifiers. This is despite him making two appearances for Chelsea after his knee injury against Fulham and Burnley. Though, Sylvinho’s comments suggest that he might be sidelined again for some time.
“What happened to Armando Broja is very simple, it arose from a serious injury. He had to stay off the pitch for nine month.”
“He came back a few weeks ago, he played a few minutes in the first match, the same in the second. Then, one match before coming to us, he played 45 minutes and was replaced due to some physical problems.”
“Normally he had a check-up at Chelsea before coming to us, the checks had gone well. When he came here, he trained. But he still had a bit of concern: we sat down and spoke to the doctor. We were in constant contact with Chelsea to find out about his injury.”
“It was clear that he couldn’t play and together with the club and the player we agreed that he would return to Chelsea and begin his recovery. That’s the whole story.”
This makes it obvious that Nikolas Jackson will return to the squad against Arsenal this weekend. Though, he himself missed the international break due to wrist injury. However, he will be fit for the return this weekend at Stamford Bridge.
