Chelsea teenage sensation, and England senior National team player, Callum Hudson-Odoi has a few hours ago, confirmed that his injury is very serious, and that he will be out for the rest of the season.
Taking to his Instagram, he announced that the injury he received at the Monday night League game against Burnley, which ended in a 2-2 draw left him with a ruptured Achilles, and will be out for the rest of the season.
The 18-year-old winger was named in Maurizio Sarri’s starting line-up for the Easter Monday clash at Stamford Bridge, but was forced off after 41 minutes after injuring his right leg.
Callum Hudson-Odoi was chasing down Charlie Taylor in the Burnley half when he pulled up after appearing to roll his ankle while sprinting.
After collapsing to the ground in agony, the 18-year-old picked himself up. But just minutes later, it was soon clear that his evening was over as he signalled to the bench and was replaced by Pedro.
The teenager had to be helped off the pitch by the Chelsea medical staff, and was applauded by the Matthew Harding stand as he slowly made his way around the pitch.
Callum Hudson-Odoi put up this post, saying:
“Really gutted to end my season with an Ruptured Achilles, gotta work hard and try and come back stronger for next season!!!❤️”
