Chelsea boss Antonio Conte says Pedro suffered multiple facial fractures in a collision with Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina in a friendly on Saturday but is expected to return to training in ten days.
The 29-year-old forward was taken to hospital following the game in Beijing, which Chelsea won 3-0, and stayed overnight.
He also suffered concussion but posted a message on social mediea saying ‘everything is OK’ before travelling back to London to continue his rehabilitation.
Pedro has been advised to wear a protective mask when he returns to training. A bit like former Chelsea keeper Petr Cech.
The rest of the Chelsea squad are now in Singapore where they will play two games – against Bayern Munich on Tuesday and Inter Milan on 29 July.
