English Champions Chelsea FC, suffering from their worst start in 37 years, have been dealt with another worrying news during the international break as Branislav Ivanovic was substituted due to an hamstring injury during Serbiaa s encounter with Albania.
The Chelsea FC right back had been in sensational form last year, but has been suffering from a dip in form since the start of the season. The Serbian, known for his solid performances, has been uncharacteristically porous, leading to calls for dropping him from the starting line-up. Despite such calls, Chelsea FC manager Jose Mourinho had retained his trust on Ivanovic, as he handed the captaina s armband to the Serbian.
The news of an injury to a player is never a good news, but Chelsea FC fans might see the positive side as they wait for Ivanovic to recover from his hamstring injury. Chelsea FC have able deputies to choose from, but it would be just a slight reshuffle in defence with Azpilicueta shifting to right-back and Baba Rahman slotting in as left-back.
The news of Ivanovica s injury was first tweeted by Oliver Todd of the Daily Mail and was quickly followed by Serbian Football. Chelsea FC fans were then quick to circulate the news among themselves.
Branislav Ivanovic substituted with a hamstring injury with Serbia 0-0 in Albania. Some would suggest good news for Chelsea.
