The latest episode of Life on Loan, the series highlighting our emerging young players and their experiences away from Chelsea, is now available to watch on The 5th Stand app.
In the latest instalment, we catch up with Dujon Sterling. The young right-back who is spending this season on loan with Wigan Athletic in the Championship and filling the void left at the DW Stadium by a certain Reece James.
It has been a real learning curve for Dujon, as he steps up to the Championship following a stint with Coventry in the league below, adapting to new surroundings, living on his own and, importantly, learning to deal with injuries setbacks while with the Latics.
The defender, who can also play further forward on either wing, has been dogged by a hamstring strain during his time at Wigan and explains how he’s been working hard to overcome that disappointment.
‘I was playing in an FA Cup game against Leicester,’ Dujon recalls. ‘I just remember sprinting back and as I’ve turned, it felt like someone had hit me in the leg.
‘Before that my season with Wigan was going well. I had received lots of positive feedback and I had played quite a few games. So to get the injury was a real blow.
‘At first, we though I’d be out for around 10 days but at the end of the 10 days, I still couldn’t walk so I had another scan. That’s when it showed that I had torn my hamstring.’
You can watch the full film with Sterling on The 5th Stand app now, in what is the second episode of our Life on Loan feature.
