Drogba will not require surgery

Posted on | October 3, 2008 | 1 Comment

Didier Drogba suffered an injury in the goalless Champions League draw against CFR Cluj.



There were  initially fears that Drogba could be out for at least 3 months but Thursday scans revealed that there are no significant ligament damages.
Chelsea manger Felipe Scolari was very happy after finding that he will not require a surgery. It looks like Drogba will be out only for few weeks but Chelsea medical staff want to keep him under observation another 2-3 days until they pronounce on the verdict.
Scolari is facing limited squad options as Deco, Carvalho, Essien, Joe Cole are all injured and Terry, Ashley Cole, Alex with back problems.
Chelsea will play Aston Villa this weekend, and the only attacking option is Anelka. The Blues are occupying the first place on Premier League standings with 14 points from 6 matches.
It remains to see if Scolari can manage the situation and keep Chelsea on top of the table.

    It sucks when you lose a player to injury.
