Portsmouth boss clarifies Chelsea starlet’s Fratton future amid frustrating lengthy absence…

Portsmouth’s manager provides clarity on the future of Chelsea’s rising star, Tino Anjorin, as he faces an extended absence due to injury.

Despite only making nine appearances for Chelsea since his arrival in August, Pompey has officially announced that Anjorin will remain at Fratton Park for the rest of the season.

The talented attacker, who has scored twice in his limited appearances, is currently sidelined with a hamstring tear, and his return is not anticipated until February.

Despite this setback, Portsmouth’s head coach, John Mousinho, has ruled out any consideration of terminating Anjorin’s season-long loan prematurely. The club remains committed to keeping him as part of their squad vying for promotion.

Mousinho explained that Anjorin is undergoing rehabilitation at Chelsea, away from the team, but emphasized that once he is close to returning, he will rejoin Portsmouth. The coach expressed optimism about having Anjorin back in a couple of months and affirmed that there are no plans to terminate his loan contract. The injury, while requiring a lengthy recovery, is not deemed serious enough to warrant ending the loan prematurely.

Anjorin had experienced early loan terminations at Huddersfield and Lokomotiv Moscow due to injuries, but Portsmouth is determined to utilize him in the latter half of the season.

Mousinho acknowledged Anjorin’s disappointment, noting his promising form and contributions in recent matches before the unfortunate hamstring injury. Despite the setback, the focus remains on ensuring Anjorin’s full recovery and reintegrating him into the squad when he is fit to play again.
