Injuries… how's Ben Chilwell?
«I think it is bad news. The doctor told me it's not a good thing. It's a bad injury but we need to assess in the next few days and we'll see the period he is going to be out of the squad and the team. But I think it doesn't look good, the injury. It was in the last minute of the game. Yes, we are really sad about the news of Ben.»
«Time? It's difficult to know now. It was only two days ago since it happened. We need to assess him and for sure, the club will communicate.»
Anyone else back for Monday?
«Hope that maybe Carney and of course Noni, also, after his injury when he came back from the national team. He is getting ready, working hard. Yes, hope these two players maybe will be available for selection on Monday.»
Reece James – after the international break?
«Maybe. No for Monday I don't believe. Maybe the week after – we will see. We also need to assess him, but I cannot confirm at the moment.»
