Reece James of Chelsea was supposed to have a big season after Mauricio Pochettino gave him the captain’s armband, but he has missed the majority of the season due to injury.
Following Chelsea’s season-opening victory over Liverpool, the right-back suffered a hamstring injury during warm-ups.
As a result, the England international missed 18 games for the Blues. Despite James’ reputation as an injury prone player, Chelsea cannot undervalue him when he is healthy.
The 23-year-old defender has made a significant declaration about his fitness and will be looking to make up for the games he missed by having an amazing season.
Reece James of Chelsea discusses his concerns about fitness.James has stated that he hasn’t “felt this good in a long time” since his early-season injury and that he can feel his strength increasing before the pivotal Premier League holiday season.
“It’s been a while since I felt this good,” the full-back stated on the team’s website.
“I can definitely feel my fitness and strength increasing once more.”I’m training hard, playing hard, and pushing the limits every day to get back to my best level. I haven’t been able to play 90 minutes yet, but I’m getting there.
“James continued, “I’m happy to be helping the team again as well,” after rejoining the group. It takes some time to recover and recover after being away for nearly three months.
“Some people think as soon as you come back you should instantly be at the level you left at, but it doesn’t work like that.”
