Chelsea doctors are waiting on Nigeria defender Kenneth Omeruo to decide on whether he would want surgery on a problematic shoulder injury.?

Omeruo?s adviser Chika Conleth Akujobi said:??The doctors at Chelsea have given Kenneth the option of surgery or therapy for his shoulder problem.?


?They want a permanent solution to this problem and so they expect him to decide in the coming week what he wants.?

?If he opts for surgery, he will be out for eight weeks.??

Akujobi added: ?There is no panic as Kenneth is in very good hands.?

?George Weah is staying in the same hotel with Kenneth and he told him there is no problem as he also had surgery on both his shoulders while he was at Chelsea.??

The Netherlands-based football expert said Omeruo?s latest injury setback will not have any negative impact on his future at Stamford Bridge.?

Chelsea technical chief and former Nigeria international Michael Emenalo has already suggested the player go out on loan, while manager Jose Mourinho is to decide on Omeruo’s fate.

The 19-year-old central defender was to have begun training with the Chelsea main squad in the new week on their return from a training tour of the United States of America.?

He has also pulled out of Wednesday?s friendly against South Africa in Durban on account of this injury.
