Video: Ruben Loftus-Cheek starts walking again
Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek has resumed walking for the first time since suffering a ruptured Achilles.
The England international sustained the injury in the Blues’ post-season friendly against New England Revolution in May and was forced to miss the Europa League final and Nations League finals.
Yesterday was a big milestone in Loftus-Cheek’s recovery as he was able to walk without assistance.
He also started doing some weights, but joked about struggling to push a 5kg weight with his injured leg.
First day walking… never thought I’d struggle pushing 5kg 😂✨💪🏾 pic.twitter.com/pNbEQJV5e6
