Chelsea won their last two matches and fans already started feeling giddy that the Blues had found back their winning ways but they may have been handed a terrible sign as they have been hit with double injury to two key players as both Brazilian midfielder Ramires and club captain John Terry have been injured.
Both players were substituted during Chelsea’s 4-0 Champions League win over Maccabi Tel Aviv in Israel.
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho confirmed that both Ramires and Terry were injured in the match but he cannot state how bad until they have both gone for a scan.
Mourinho however made sure he found something to blame for the injuries as he was very angry with the state of the pitch which he claimed was responsible for the injuries and he was also seen covering up patches of the field with grass throughout the match.
He said, “I was saying before, such a beautiful stadium, such a fantastic public.” “They deserve a better surface because the surface was bad and dangerous.”
“We trained on it just a little bit. We tried to protect ourselves. But by my surprise, Maccabi trained after us. Plus the warm-up before the game, the pitch was really bad.”
“Ramires slid and has a muscular injury. John has an ankle injury I think down to the pitch, and we don’t know how bad it is yet.”
“For John to leave the pitch with the score at 1-0, I know already that he’s in trouble.”
“To be fair, my medical department is really good and John is a special guy with a special desire to recover, but to leave the pitch with the result 1-0, I don’t believe too much that he can play on Sunday.”
