5. Tuchel delivers mask update on Aubameyang as Chelsea wait on debut for £10m striker
Thomas Tuchel on when we can expect to see Aubameyang! ⤵️— Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) September 3, 2022
Chelsea has found a mask that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang feels comfortable in, Thomas Tuchel has revealed, with the striker ready to join training. The Blues bolstered their attacking ranks on transfer deadline day when bringing former Arsenal frontman Aubameyang back to England from Barcelona in a £10 million ($12m) deal. He is, however, nursing a jaw injury after being attacked during a burglary and is waiting on a green light to make his Premier League debut for new employers.
Tuchel has said of efforts to find the 33-year-old a protective face covering that will allow him to take to the field: “Auba will train on Sunday but I cannot tell you yet if it’s full contact or individually. We’ll need to see. He has the mask and the doctors tell me the mask is good and he feels comfortable with it. So he would be okay but we need to check it and we need to check it with no contact, half-contact, and then full contact. We need to see how he feels with it. It’s too early to make a prediction but he’ll be in training.”
