The Albania international striker, who is working his way back from injury at Stamford Bridge, has been filmed engaging in a play fight with famous Blues backroom staff member McCulloch.
THE BIGGER PICTURE
In the routine, Broja punches McCulloch on the arm, before seeing his adversary return the favour with a harder blow. Broja crumples onto a nearby table, with a smile locked on his face throughout. McCulloch finds the incident hysterical and leaves the room with Broja and Ben Chilwell still inside.
AND WHAT'S MORE
Broja has now asked Chilwell – who has posted the video on social media – to “set up the fight” between himself and “Billy Blood”.
Broja has been out of action since November 2022 – with his last appearance coming for Albania in a friendly clash with Italy – but he is nearing a return to club competition after undergoing surgery on a serious knee problem that was picked up during the World Cup break. He could come into contention for selection at a timely moment for Chelsea, with new Blues boss Mauricio Pochettino crying out for a No.9 to lead the line in his team.
