Chelsea's Pedro (C) leaves the field after a collision with Arsenal's David Ospina during their pre-season football match in Beijing.

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte said Monday that forward Pedro sustained “multiple fractures” to his face after colliding with Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina.

The 29-year-old Spaniard was taken to hospital with a bloodied face after Ospina flew into him while clearing a ball with two fists during the Blues’ preseason friendly against London rivals, Arsenal.

 

Conte speaking to media said “The situation was more serious because I hoped that it would only be a concussion, instead he had multiple fractures and I think with a mask in 10 days, he could come back to work for us.”

The Chelsea boss however said  there was no ill-feeling towards Ospina stating that “Absolutely no, because I was a player, I know these accidental (challenges) could happen.”

Pedro spent the night in a Beijing hospital and returned to London the following day.
