Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta suffered a hamstring injury in the FA Cup final defeat to Arsenal that prevented him from taking part in the second leg of our Champions League tie against Bayern.
The Spaniard has provided an optimistic update on his hamstring injury after revealing he could return before the start of preseason.
“I am hoping to be fit for the start of pre-season,” Azpilicueta told Chelsea’s official website.
“I’ve been lucky enough not to have had many injuries in my career but unfortunately it happened against Arsenal.
“I’m working with the physio now with a programme from the club, while also spending a bit of time with my family, but mostly training and working on the pitch to recover. If everything goes well, I will be ready to start pre-season as normal.”
