Manager of Chelsea Antonio Conte has provided an update on the injury suffered by Ola Aina, Chelsea’s teen defender of Nigerian heritage during their 3-2 win over Bristol Rovers in the English League Cup.

Aina went off injured in the second half during the Blues 3-2 win over the Championship side on his first team debut for the team he joined at the age of 9.

The 19 year old comfortable as a right full back, started at left back and showed part of the reasons why Chelsea pulled all of the stops to sign him to an extension this summer .

Speaking after the game, manager Antonio Conte was full of praise for the teen defender before confirming his fears about the injury the young full back suffered.

” We are working with the club every day on improving the squad and hopefully the injury that forced Aina off is not serious” He said.
