Chelsea striker Radamel Falcao will be out until mid-January after suffering a setback in his recovery from injury.
The Colombian, who hasn’t played for Chelsea since the 1-3 defeat to Liverpool on 31st October, suffered a recurrence of his thigh injury during training.
Speaking to the press, manager Guus Hiddink said the setback will keep Falcao out for 10 days:
“I think it’s back to square one,” Hiddink said.
“We had him in a game and he had this injury again that he had before. It’s the inside of his thigh.
“We hope within 10 days he might be fit again, though not to play.”
The 29-year old is on a season-long loan from Monaco but has found the net just once this season.
