Chelsea appointed a new captain this summer with the arrival of manager Mauricio Pochettino.
The captain’s position became vacant when former captain Cesar Azpilicueta transferred to Atletico Madrid.
Mauricio Pochettino’s new Chelsea manager’s decision was surprisingly James, born in 1999.
No one knows that James is a key resource at Chelsea and is a member of the Seonggol youth team that was raised with great care.
However, the concern that arose from the time James took over as captain was how well he would be able to play the game. 토토사이트
According to his profile, James is 180cm tall, which is not an outstanding physical condition, but he is a player whose body is well developed to the extent that you can feel his solid muscles at a glance.
He has great skills, but he has a serious glass body.
He began playing in the first team in earnest in the 2019-20 season, but has already been injured 17 times.
Starting with the 2020-21 season, playing time continues to decrease. Last season, the injury was so severe that he could only play 24 official games.
Although the captain does not necessarily have to play to demonstrate leadership, it is more helpful for the captain to play frequently and lead the team.
As Chelsea was opening a new era, the captain’s role was more important.
Unfortunately, James suffered a long-term injury shortly after the league opener.
James, who was injured during training, has not yet returned.
Meanwhile, Chelsea is struggling in a similar ranking to last season.
Fortunately, there was a prediction that James would return after the October international break.
James also announced through the club that he could return to the field soon, saying, “I am now close to returning.
I have been working on the grass for the past few weeks and working hard to return.
I am trying to put the injury problem to rest and help the team as much as possible.” .
However, James appears to have been injured again.
Italy’s Di Marzio said on his personal SNS on the 18th, “James was injured in training 10 days ago.
He was examined and said he was fine, but he is training alone.”
The Arsenal match is just around the corner, but if you are still training individually, your chances of playing are very low.
It must also be taken into account that the player has so many minor injuries that if he is forced to return, the injury may reoccur.
Chelsea is not seeing any effect from appointing James as captain.
On the other hand, Chelsea’s rival Tottenham is the best example of a captain change this season.
With the absence of Harry Kane and Hugo Lloris, Tottenham was left without leadership players, but Son Heung-min is evaluated as leading the team well as captain.
The team is also ranked 1st.
