Frank Lampard, Chelsea’s manager, reveals that Reuben Loftus-Cheek had the skill of scoring goals from his midfield position – and the Blues have certainly missed that.
Loftus-Cheek has injured his Achilles and was out for seven whole months this season. His injury, however, is healing and he is limping his back to the pitch now!
The 24-year old midfielder has resumed training. His plan is to train with the Under-23s and Under-19s to bring him back to shape and get his old form back. If anything, Lampard is definitely relieved.
“I think you will miss Ruben; I don’t care who you are,” Lampard told Goal.
“You’ll miss his abilities. His natural physique, his ability to move the ball and score goals like he did last season, that has to be a big part of his game as well.
“We’ve missed a player of that level and his return has put a smile on everyone’s face, because he is popular with his team-mates too.
“It was the first day with us fully on Friday and it was a light session so that suited him. He has a fair way to go still. He just needs a full week training with us first, a tough week.”
