Frank Lampard delivers a positive update on Christian Pulisic injury.
Frank Lampard reveals that Pulisic’s hamstring injury is not serious but is expected to miss Wednesday’s match against Stade Rennais.
“Christian had a scan yesterday, which showed a very minor injury to his hamstring,” Lampard said in his pre-match press conference on Tuesday.
“It’s very minor, which is good, and he’s already back outside. He won’t be fit for tomorrow’s game but we will see after that.
“It’s a relief for the injury to be on the small side, of course, and it felt that way to Christian. He made the right decision to pull out against Burnley.
“We are pleased it’s not a serious injury and we hope to have him back very soon, because he’s an important player for us.”
“Muscle injuries are things you have to be careful with and some players who play on the edge and have speed could be more susceptible to them,” said the manager.
“We are looking at ways to manage Christian, we are all working in the same direction on that front. We all know the talent he has and he’s a very important player for us.”
