    I think CAS will allow a delay, even though that largely negates the effectiveness of the ban. They will take follow the requirement that due process doesn't punish anyone before the legal process is complete.

    I wonder if UEFA could give longer bans with some provision that it would be shortened for good behaviour (i.e. not appealing to CAS).

    Yeah you'd think if Hazard said I definitely want to stay at Chelsea, the club would be shouting that from the rooftops.

    Thought similar myself.

    Not that I'm too worried, their transfer strategy leaves a lot to be desired.

    Roma and Milan pursue Sarri deal
    Serie A clubs are already lining up to sign Maurizio Sarri.

    The Chelsea boss is edging closer to the sack after a mixed first season at Stamford Bridge.

    Despite the turnaround in fortunes, Sarri oversaw a crushing period for Chelsea which has seen him lose the faith of the fans - and his future is not secure as a result.

    Roma and AC Milan are both ready to make Sarri an offer and bring him back to Italy.

    It is believed that Roma are especially keen on the former Napoli boss and are pushing hard to get a deal done.

    Loftus-Cheek ruptured his achilles in their silly friendly in America.

    Will miss the EUROPA league final for sure, and quite possibly the start of next season.

    Probably betrays the fact they didnt think they would be in line for any cup finals...

    Apparently it is part of a “say no to antisemitism” campaign and raised over $4m but not sure their Combat 18 lot will be too happy about losing a key midfielder ahead of a final.

    Hopefully the Goons have some friendlies lined up!

    Providing your players are careful I don't think it's such a bad idea, these finals are so long after our season and just playing against the same blokes all the time can make you stale.

    by all means, an in house, everyone knows what its for, friendly is fine, necessary, I'm sure we'll play a couple before the CL final, but chelsea didn't do that, they scheduled a public game that both sides tried to win, the line of acceptable risk was clearly in a different place

    it's terrible for the kid as he may lose a year of his career

    obviously, injury can happen at any time, but this friendly was ill advised

    Hmm, possible preparation issues then?

    Doesn’t help them with their transfer ban either.

    It's a horrible injury...and not one for a young professional athlete to have the legacy of for potentially the best years of his career.

    How long were you out for and were there any lasting effects? Mate of mine did his a few weeks ago.

    About 6 weeks, it finished me at football as I was 42 at the time and didn't have the drive to get back to fitness.
