Chelsea midfielder Loftus-Cheek: I'm going to come back stronger, sharper

Ruben Loftus-Cheek insists he'll come stronger from his latest injury.

The Chelsea midfielder is still recovering from an Achilles injury that has kept him out of action for the past five months.

"My family have been fantastic through that period," Loftus-Cheek told Wow Hydrate.

"When you have a good day you get excited, getting that much closer to getting back on the pitch again playing football, getting back in the gym and pushing it, so we will see how it goes.

"I've actually had a few setbacks that have put me behind which has been quite frustrating to be honest.

"Before I got injured I was playing my best football. I've missed feeling tired from running, from hard work, that feeling of being in a game again.

"I've only just got pain free but for sure I'm going to come back stronger, sharper and do whatever I can to be in better shape."
