- After that injury, I worked hard to be ready for the World Cup. It’s always been my dream. Unfortunately, this will not be possible after the scan results. I will do everything I can to play for Chelsea again as soon as possible – wrote Chilwell on social networks.
Chelsea announced that Chilwell had suffered a “serious” injury and would “begin a rehabilitation program with the club’s medical service”.
