Maurizio Sarri has downplayed the extent of Pedro’s shoulder injury in the course of the 1 nil win against PAOK Salonika in the Europa League on Thursday.
Pedro accidentally collided with PAOK goalkeeper Alexandros Paschalakis few minutes before the end of the game and was taken off the pitch with assistance from Chelsea’s medical staff.
According to Sarri, further assessments would be carried out on the player to determine how severe the injury is.
However, he added that the injury may not be as bad as he first feared after the collision occurred
In the course of the post-match conference, Sarri said: “I don’t know exactly the situation.”
“I have only talked to the doctor for a few seconds and he said probably it is not a very serious injury.”
