‘I feel as good as ever’: Ruben Loftus-Cheek insists he left injury struggles behind

“I’ve always believed that I could make it but there have just been a lot of setbacks along the way. Despite that, I’ve always believed that I could play for Chelsea regularly,” Ruben Loftus-Cheek told the club’s official website.

‘For me, it’s just about staying injury-free and I’ve been that for over a year now for the first time in my career. There’s something I can take from that and I’m really happy with myself.

‘The extra work that I’m doing is keeping me on the pitch and available to play, which is the most important thing. On top of that, I have to do the work and play well on the pitch, which always feels natural for me anyway. When I’m feeling good, I generally perform well.

“In my head, I’ve left that Achilles injury behind,” he added. “I still have to do stuff to keep it strong and healthy but day-to-day in training and games it doesn’t come into my head anymore.

Loftus-Cheek suffered a horrible injury back in May 2019, and it’s only now that he’s getting close to the performance levels he showed before that.
