CROCKED Chelsea star Reece James hilariously caught out Marcus Bettinelli after his Blues team-mate snubbed a coffee trip with him.
James is currently sidelined with a knee injury and a major doubt for the World Cup.
As a result, the 22-year-old had some spare time on his hands on Wednesday morning.
And with goalkeeper Bettinelli rarely in the Chelsea squad, James asked his Stamford Bridge pal if he fancied grabbing a coffee.
While the Chelsea squad prepped for this evening’s trip to Brentford the injured James headed out for a drink.
He headed out solo after Bettinelli snubbed his invitation.
But as he was out, James awkwardly bumped into Bettinelli, who was out walking his dogs but “pied” James’ coffee invitation.
James hilariously took a snap of Bettinelli, who could only stand with his arms outstretched laughing.
The right-back wrote on his Insta story: “When u ask your pal to go for coffee in the am but he pies u!! Then you catch him there @marcusbettinelli.”
James is currently sidelined after injuring his knee in the 2-0 Champions League win against AC Milan last week.
He is set to spend eight weeks out as he recovers, and will wear a knee brace for the next month.
James would likely be a starter at the World Cup in Qatar if fully fit.
But England’s first game is against Iran on November 21 — barely a week after James is due to have his knee brace removed.
The knee-ligament damaged he sustained has left his World Cup dream in tatters.
