This has to be the most heart-breaking sport news at this period, particularly to Chelsea fans who have been looking forward to seeing their legend don the Blues kit and play again.
Chelsea and Barcelona’s new signings, Didier Drogba and Thomas Vermaelen have been ruled out for months for injuries. While Didier sustained an ankle injury during Chelsea’s game with Ferencváros yesterday, Thomas on the other hand sustained his; a thigh injury at the 2014 World Cup.
Meaning, Barcelona were aware of his situation but just decided to shroud that part in secrecy or how do we explain an injury just two days after he passed his medical at the Catalan club?
Thomas Vermaelen who was signed from passed from Arsenal for a £15m fee, according to Barca’s website “will undergo physiotherapy and will be unavailable for an unknown period.” Drogba on the other hand could return to action after 4-6 months.
Arsene Wenger is a smart biz man afterall. *winks*
