Callum Hudson-Odoi injury: Chelsea issue update and it’s not good news

CHELSEA have issued an update on Callum Hudson-Odoi’s injury after the star was forced off early against Burnley on Monday night.

Hudson-Odoi injured his Achilles during the clash and early reports suggested he could be out for up to four months.

And though Chelsea haven’t put a timeline on his injury, the Blues have confirmed that the youngster needs surgery.

A club statement read: “Callum is seeing a specialist this afternoon and is expected to undergo surgery on his ruptured Achilles tendon this evening.PROMOTED STORY

“The 18-year-old winger limped off during the first half of last night’s 2-2 draw against Burnley, his 28th Chelsea appearance of the season.

“He has netted five goals since making his debut for the Blues in the Community Shield against Manchester City at the beginning of the season.

“Hudson-Odoi made his England debut during last month’s international break, coming off as a sub against Czech Republic before starting the 5-0 win in Montenegro.”

Hudson-Odoi could miss the start of next season and England’s UEFA Nations League campaign.

Hudson-Odoi had been linked with a move to Bayern Munich though reports now suggest the Bundesliga giants have cooled their interest.

The attacker had forced his way into Maurizio Sarri’s plans at Chelsea, seemingly opening the door for Eden Hazard to leave.

And former Premier League goalkeeper Shaka Hislop believes Hudson-Odoi’s injury could be bad news for the Belgian.

“I thought both of those [injuries – N’Golo Kante was also injured] were two huge blows, in particular Hudson-Odoi,” he said.

“I feel when he’s on the pitch, that’s when you see the best of Eden Hazard, you’ve got someone to carry the load, albeit on the other side of the pitch.

“Once he goes off, the only real threat is Eden Hazard, and Burnley knew that.

“All they had to do was to put numbers [of defenders] on him, and exercise a certain amount of discipline.

“You know that nobody else is going to threaten you, and Chelsea showed in the second half without Hudson-Odoi and Kante is what we’ve seen from Chelsea six weeks ago.

“Fantastic football but not really troubling Burnley too much in ways you would think.

“A team that’s pushing for top four football, looking to get into Europa League final, should beat a team who are just trying to stay in the Premier League.”
