Chelsea manager Emma Hayes Revealed About Fran Kirby’s Condition

Chelsea manager Emma Hayes is preparing her team to take on Arsenal this weekend. Kirby has been suffering from ‘fatigue’, and the cause of her health problem is yet unknown.

Hayes said:

“No chance of her playing at the weekend. She’s been taking some time in the background, been suffering from a lot of fatigue.

“I don’t have a definitive reason why that is, we don’t know but we’re trying to get to the bottom of it and taking the time we can to try and find the right solutions for Fran. This is something that’s been ongoing and unfortunately, until we get to the bottom of it Fran won’t be available for selection.”
