Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois missed the 2-0 defeat to Manchester United on Sunday after he reportedly got himself injured during training but this seems not to be the real story.
According to Sky Sports, Courtois sustained an ankle problem while playing basketball in a commercial shoot.
When asked before the game how Courtois got injured, Chelsea boss Antonio Conte refused to confirm how he got injured.
“I think it is not important now to understand the way that he had this injury,” Conte told Sky Sports.
“The bad news is that he is injured and now it is important to work to recover very soon.”
