Benoit Badiashile has had a setback in his recovery from a hamstring injury and will not be fit to feature in the squad this weekend, Football London are reporting.
We’re pretty numb to all this news now – we lost Badiashile at the end of last season playing meaningless games, he’s missed an entire summer, he’s missed the first 5 matches of this season – is anyone really surprised that he’s now had a setback?
We still have three good central defenders available so it’s not a disaster anyway – it’s just another blow to any momentum we build up as we desperately try to build momentum and regain a fit squad.
Badiashile had been training on the grass for some time, and had even been seen in proper sessions with the team. We expected him to be on the bench for Sunday’s game against Aston Villa, but it looks like we could have even more time to wait.
