"It is a very bad injury" - Chelsea striker out for at least three months, news confirmed by manager


Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic has confirmed that Chelsea striker Lucas Piazon will be ruled out for months.

The Brazilian suffered a suspected broken leg last night against Leeds United and could spend up to six months on the sidelines.

Jokanovic was bitterly disappointed after the game as he described the injury as "very bad".

"It is a very bad injury and we are going to lose him for a long time," he said.

"We are so disappointed with the situation about Lucas Piazon, I expect he is going to recover soon and he will be available soon.

"I don't believe Lucas will come back with us on the bus, I don't know exactly if he is in hospital right now."
