Pedro, 29, collided with Arsenal’s David Ospina in Chelsea’s 3-0 win against the Gunners in Beijing on Saturday and it turns out his injury is worse than first feared.
Pedro will not be out for an extended period of time even though the Spanish winger suffered “multiple fractures” to his face.
“The situation was more serious than I thought because I hoped it would only be concussion and instead he had multiple fractures,” Conte said.
“With a mask, and in around 10 days, he can come back to work with us.”
The likes of Cesar Azpilicueta, Gary Cahill, John Terry and now Pedro have been forced to wear a protective mask .
The Spaniard could be ready for the FA Community Shield against Arsenal at Wembly on Aug. 6 but with Eden Hazard already out injured for the opening weeks of the season after requiring ankle surgery this summer.
Get well soon Pedro
