CONTE GIVES WORRYING ASSESSMENT OF HAZARD’S RETURN FROM INJURY

Chelsea star Eden Hazard suffered an ankle injury back in June while on international duty with Belgium at the end of last season.

The 26-year-old was ruled out for the following three months and has posted updates on of his progress.

However, Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has given a worrying assessment of when Hazard will return from injury.

“It’s difficult to give a time or a date. Difficult, difficult,” Conte said of the Belgium star.

Hazard hasn’t played a game for Chelsea since the loss to Arsenal in the FA Cup final in May, and since then he hasn’t played any serious football – missing international football with Belgium and all of Chelsea’s pre-season games.
