SPORTS:Chelsea have been left scrambling to save Ramires’ World Cup dream after his injury row with Brazil resurfaced.

The midfielder was not selected for the recent Confederations Cup squad, and Brazil Football Association president Jose Maria Marin recently questioned the midfielder’s commitment after he withdrew from friendly games against Russia and Italy back in March through injury.
However, the Blues have moved to clarify the situation and have held up their own hands over the confusion with the Selecao.
A Chelsea spokesman said: ‘Contrary to media reports, Chelsea Football Club can confirm that Ramires was not available to play for Brazil in friendly matches against Russia and Italy in March of this year due to injury.
‘The left adductor muscle injury was confirmed following an MRI scan and he underwent treatment at Chelsea FC’s medical department from March 17 to March 28.
‘Throughout this time information was relayed to the Brazilian national team doctor in the usual way and the treatment was agreed between the club and national team.
‘However, Chelsea FC would like to apologise that it was not made clear when Ramires would be able to report back to the national squad.’
