Chelsea have confirmed that winger Pedro will return to England after he suffered a concussion on the club’s pre-season tour of Asia.
In Chelsea’s’ 3-0 win over Arsenal in Beijing on Saturday, the 29-year-old was injured following a collision with Gunners goalkeeper David Ospina.
A Chelsea statement on their official website read: “Pedro stayed in hospital overnight in Beijing for observation having sustained a concussion and facial injuries in last night’s game against Arsenal. He will now return to London for further review.”
He also issued an update on his own social media page, writing: “What a shock! Fortunately everything is okay. Thanks for your messages.”
