[My Daily = Correspondent Yoo Ju-jeong, London] Local time On the 5th, defender Benoit Badiacil, who joined Chelsea in the English Premier League (EPL), is more likely to make his debut three days later. It is because of the line injuries of his teammates.
On the 6th local time, Football London, a British football media outlet, reported this and explained, “Because there are not many options left for manager Graham Porter.” 스포츠토토
Chelsea will play an away game against Manchester City in the third round of the FA Cup at 4:30 pm (local time) on the 8th (local time 1:30 am the next day).
Chelsea’s situation is not good. Ten players, including Raheem Sterling, N’Golo Kante, Reese James and Mason Mount, are off the ground with injuries.
Striker Sterling was injured in the 19th round of the Premier League against Man City on the 5th.
The defensive situation is even more dire. Defensive midfielder Kante has been sidelined since August last year due to a problem with his hamstring. There is a prospect that it will be possible to return at the end of February. James, the team’s key right-back, also left the squad at the end of last year after injuring his knee.
On the other hand, replacement resources are not good enough. Center back Wesley Popana, who played in four Premier League games this season, is also resting with a knee injury. A return is expected at the end of this month. Left-back Ben Chilwell has been off the grass since picking up a hamstring injury last November. Chilwell had to give up his participation in the World Cup in Qatar.
Football London explains that the name of Badiasil came to mind in this situation. Born in 2001 and soon to be 22, Badiacil is of French descent from the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
He was recruited by Chelsea after passing through Monaco youth, U-19 team and first team. He played 838 minutes in 11 matches in the French Ligue 1 this season. Monaco’s Europa League schedule was also digested except for one game missed due to injury. He played the full 90 minutes in each of his five matches.
Despite his height of 194 cm and his burly build, he quickly made his mark at several big clubs early on. In addition to Chelsea, Manchester United and Atletico Madrid have their eyes on Vardy Asil, but it is said that the player himself strongly wanted to go to Chelsea.
