Chelsea Star Enzo Fernandez Sidelined by Chronic Injury, Leaving Fans Anxious


In a recent Cup game between Chelsea and Newcastle United, Enzo Fernandez had to leave the field. He looked very upset as he exited the pitch. At first, it seemed like he was not feeling well. Now we know he has a serious and long-term pubalgia issue. Fans are waiting to hear more about how bad it is. It’s clear that this could affect how well Chelsea plays in their upcoming games.

Enzo Fernandez’s Emotional Exit Raises Concerns

After Chelsea won in a penalty shootout against Newcastle (4-2), people noticed that Enzo Fernandez, who played in the game, looked really upset when he left the field. He was wearing a hood and crying, and this worried fans. Manager Mauricio Pochettino explained that Fernandez, despite not feeling well before the game, attempted to play anyway. As the game went on, it became clear that there was a bigger problem.

Pochettino stated,

“He was a little bit sick before the game. He tried, he wanted to play, see if it goes well but it goes not so well and that is why [he looked upset].”

Enzo Fernandez’s emotional reaction hints at a more serious problem than just being sick. According to Argentine journalist Gaston Edul, Fernandez is dealing with a ‘chronic’ pubalgia issue. This is a condition that has affected other football stars like Lionel Messi before.

The Challenge of Pubalgia – A Hurdle for Football’s Finest

Gaston Edul shared that Enzo Fernandez has a ‘chronic’ pubalgia problem, a condition that has also affected famous football players like Juventus forward Dusan Vlahovic and the legendary Lionel Messi. Pubalgia is a complex issue that needs careful handling. It usually involves taking a break or getting treatment to ease discomfort during games and prevent the symptoms from getting worse.

When Dusan Vlahovic had a similar issue, people got worried when he was considering joining Paris Saint-Germain. This shows how important it is to handle these conditions carefully, not just for the players’ well-being but also for the overall performance and teamwork of the team. Lionel Messi, discussing his own pubalgia issue in 2019, highlighted the complexities involved, stating,

“Pubalgia is complicated. I suffer from it for a while now, I do little training and I can not play all the games. It is not a problem that can be solved overnight.”

With Chelsea possibly missing their star midfielder due to Enzo Fernandez’s ‘chronic’ pubalgia issue, it highlights the difficulties that footballers go through—both physically and mentally—as they strive to perform at their best on the field.

In the next few days, Chelsea fans are eagerly waiting for news about Fernandez’s health. They really want him to get better quickly. Fernandez, who was a crucial part of the team’s success this season under coach Mauricio Pochettino, was signed for a big amount in January (£107 million).
