Chelsea fans take to Twitter in devastation after Hudson-Odoi blow

Chelsea fans take to Twitter in devastation after Hudson-Odoi blow

It was bad enough that Chelsea fans couldn’t celebrate a win last night against Burnley at Stamford Bridge, but just to rub salt into their gaping wounds, they lost Callum Hudson-Odoi to injury. The young winger suffered a ruptured achilles in the 2-2 draw and now faces a long time on the sidelines, which has come as awful news for the supporters.

The world went mad for Hudson-Odoi this season. The youngster was subject of a number of transfer bids from Bayern Munich in the January transfer window and at one point looked like he would surely be swapping London for Munich. Ultimately, he stayed at Stamford Bridge and has been getting a lot more game time recently, up until last night’s horrific injury.

At the age of just 18-years-old, suffering such a huge blow at this stage of his development could prove to have awful consequences. The next six months, or however long it takes for the winger to return to fitness, will be crucial and if he can get back on his feet and have a strong recovery process then it shouldn’t affect his development too much, but the fans are still full of worry.

You can read the Blues’ messages for Hudson-Odoi below:

The Blues couldn’t be more gutted at the moment and will just hope that Hudson-Odoi isn’t rushed back and can take the time to recover properly.
