Chelsea

Hudson-Odoi to miss rest of season

23rd April 2019, 10:38 by Michael Holland

Callum Hudson-Odoi has revealed he will miss the rest of Chelsea's season with a ruptured Achilles tendon.

The Blues starlet picked up the injury during the 2-2 draw with Burnley on Monday night and had to be replaced by Pedro four minutes before half-time.

Chelsea have yet to comment on the injury, but Hudson-Odoi himself took to twitter later in the evening to reveal the bad news.

The 18-year-old will miss England's Nations League exploits this summer and Chelsea's final push for a top-four Premier League finish and Europa League glory.

"Really gutted to end my season with a ruptured Achilles, got to work hard and try to come back stronger for next season," Hudson-Odoi posted on twitter.

Hudson-Odoi has been heavily linked with a move away from the club and Chelsea fans will be hoping this is not the last they have seen of him in a blue shirt.

Meanwhile, assistant boss Gianfranco Zola says he expects Kante to recover quickly from a "contusion" to his ribs, picked up in the same game.
