Romeo Lavia is dissatisfied with Chelsea’s handling of his early life, and the team is presently looking for answers, sources informed TEAMtalk
Romeo Lavia has struggled with injuries since leaving Southampton in the summer for a £53 million transfer. The 20-year-old appears to be getting upset with his circumstances despite having just played 32 minutes of Premier League football.
According to TEAMtalk sources, the midfield player is dissatisfied with both the way his season has started and the lack of improvement with his injury. Lavia has been kept in the dark by the club and is unsure of when he will return.
According to those close to the athlete, Chelsea has not managed his situation well, which has made his problems worse.
Earlier this month, Mauricio Pochettino responded to reporters who inquired about Lavia’s availability by saying, “He is not training with the team.” He’s still getting better. Not possible. He has yet to enter the field.
Chelsea’s season has been tough thus far since Pochettino’s team has had trouble being very consistent. They are now 16 points outside of the top four and in the bottom half of the table.
Chelsea looking for a resolution
Over the past 18 months, several Chelsea players have suffered from chronic ailments, and the team is currently looking for a remedy.
TEAMtalk has learned from sources that Chelsea is looking to add more employees to aid with the ongoing injury problems that have plagued the team recently.
In addition to Lavia, other players sidelined at the moment include Reece James, Wesley Fofana, Marc Cucurella, Robert Sanchez, Trevoh Chalobah, Levi Colwill, Benoit Badiashile, and Lesley Ugochukwu.
As the midfield player continues to heal, Lavia himself just updated Chelsea supporters on social media about his injury status.
Lavia wrote on X, “I wanted to let you know that it means a lot to me. I received a lot of support messages.”
“I’m devastated that I can’t support the team, but my only goal is to return.” It will be worth waiting.
The 20-year-old signed a long seven-year contract with Chelsea when he first joined the team in the summer, and he is currently under contract there until 2030.
Although Pochettino is fully aware that the team’s performance must improve in the upcoming months, Chelsea’s season-long injury list has undoubtedly hampered him.
