​Chelsea manager Sarri still furious over Loftus-Cheek injury

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has not gotten over his fury regarding a bad pitch that led to the injury of Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

Loftus-Cheek suffered an achilles tendon injury in last Wednesday's Holocaust Memorial match in the USA.

The English midfielder played against New England Revolution when he suffered the devastating blow.

It means he is certainly out of the Europa League final against Arsenal, their last game of the season.

According to The Sun, Sarri had no issues playing the friendly as it was for a great cause, but he is unhappy it was played on a pitch of such poor quality that it caused a serious injury to a key player.
