Maurizio Sarri has provided an update on RLC’s fitness ahead of the next week’s Europa League final against Arsenal.
Three players are certain to miss the game with Ruben Loftus-Cheek being the latest addition to the injury list after a friendly game at Boston last week.
The coach also explained the reasons behind RLC’s unfortunate injury:
“In Boston, the pitch wasn’t very good. With an injury like that it is not just one reason, there are many different reasons. The injury is very similar to the Callum injury. Not the same but similar. The time to recover is the same.
“Loftus has become very important for us. I am sure that he will be able to return stronger than before. One of the most important in Europe. It is difficult to say the timing of his return.
Probably he will have training after five months and then to be able to play at 100%. It is different. I don’t know exactly the timing.”
