Reece James

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has provided an injury update on Reece James. 

The defender picked yet another injury last week, days after his return following a long stay out.

Speaking after the 2-0 win over Middlesborough on Saturday evening, Tuchel said the player is currently in individual training and needs some time to fully get on track.

James was named in the England national team for the upcoming friendly matches, but Tuchel does not want the defender to join the team.

“Petr [Cech] will have this chat because of course the recommendation is that he does not go. He’s still in individual training otherwise we would have brought him to Lille and we would have brought him here.

“He needs one more week of individual rehabilitation and I think we can provide this much better. It’s not the job of the national team to do this,”

The German further gave an update on what he knows about the ownership of the club.

“I knew about the timescale [of offers being made] but I don’t know anything about the offers. I don’t know how many offers or who the offers are from and I’m also not so interested in the details of this process.

“I’m informed about the guidelines of the process and that’s enough for me. The offers are in now and the board tries to find a decision with the government as soon as possible,”

Chelsea will next be in action in April when they will host London club Brentford after the international break.
