Sam Hutchinson edges towards Chelsea return

Chelsea fans would have been disappointed when Sam Hutchinson suffered a knee injury in August 2010, which appeared to have cut short his career at the age of just 21. The young Chelsea player had shown plenty of promise and was touted as the natural replacement to club captain, John Terry.

But now it seems like there may be new hope of a return for the starlet. According to the Daily Mail, Sam took up the captain’s armband to lead Chelsea reserves against Aston Villa on Monday night. Hutchinson, who the Chelsea medical team claimed had reached a premature end to his career due to his knee injury, shocked everyone as he played out the entire 90 minutes.

Speaking on how this comeback was even possible after nearly a year out, a club representative stated: “He did some coaching, but the trick was to get him away from the training ground to clear his head. He went swimming, played tennis and golf, just to do something else.”
