Trevoh Chalobah's aide banned from Chelsea as new details emerge - 'someone can't be trusted,' says pundit

Trevoh Chalobah’s personal trainer will never be allowed back inside Chelsea after his private messages were leaked online.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, former Tottenham and Aston Villa defender Alan Hutton couldn’t believe the private criticism was allowed to get out into the public domain.

As shared by the Daily Mail (19 September), Ed Hodge, who works closely with Chalobah branded the Blues’ injury crisis “an absolute mess” in a now deleted Twitter post which shared screenshots of the direct messages sent by Hodge.

He also criticised the type of training at Stamford Bridge citing it as the reason for all their injury issues.

Summer signings Moises Caicedo, Romeo Lavia and Christopher Nkunku are currently absent with Reece James, Wesley Fofana, Benoit Badiashile and Carney Chukwuemeka all still on the treatment table.

Hutton urged fans not to read too much into the comments but couldn’t believe they were able to be aired so publicly.

It is just his opinion,” he told Football Insider.

I can be in a squad and think we haven’t done enough of something or the sports scientist can be telling you you need to do more running or the manager deciding that you have done.

My biggest issue is how has that got out? If you are having a private conversation between friends, how has that got into the public domain? Obviously somebody can’t be trusted.

Everybody has their own opinion and you just have to be careful who you share it with. He might be in and around the club all the time and this is just his own opinion, the problem is he won’t be allowed in the club anymore.
