Chelsea youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi suffered an injury during Monday’s 2-2 Premier League draw against Burnley at Stamford Bridge.
The 18-year-old was forced off in the 41st minute at Stamford Bridge with Pedro coming on to replace him, and he took to social media afterwards to express his disappointment as he revealed that his season was over.
Hudson-Odoi wrote on Twitter: “Really gutted to end my season with an Ruptured Achilles, gotta work hard and try and come back stronger for next season!!!”
Chelsea confirmed on Tuesday that Hudson-Odoi will undergo surgery on his ruptured Achilles tendon.
Hudson-Odoi has now thanked fans for their support as he revealed that the surgery was successful.
He wrote on Twitter: “Operation was Successful, Thank God always and thank you all for your messages and support, the return begins now!!!”
Hudson-Odoi has been ruled out until the end of the season and is also expected to miss the start of next season through injury.
It has been a breakthrough season for the youngster as he’s made 24 appearances for the Blues in all competitions, scoring five times for Maurizio Sarri’s side and looks to have an exciting future ahead of him.
The youngster has also made his senior debut for the Three Lions as Gareth Southgate called him to the senior England squad last month and he made his international debut, first coming off the bench in a 5-0 win over the Czech Republic. He then got his first start in the following game as England defeated Montenegro 5-1.
