Chelsea youngster, Callum Hudson-Odoi’s season has come to an end and could be out for possibly much longer—after appearing to rupture his Achilles tendon on Monday in Chelsea’s 2-2 draw against Burnley.
While Chelsea has yet to conduct scans on the young star, the club appears to be bracing for the worst after Hudson-Odoi appeared to land awkwardly while trying to control a ball and proceeded to limp around before being replaced by Pedro. Hudson-Odoi confirmed the severity of the injury on Twitter after the match.
The injury concludes a frustrating year for Hudson-Odoi that saw the Chelsea academy product agitated at not getting more first-team opportunities under manager Maurizio Sarri. Hudson-Odoi even put in a formal transfer request in January after drawing interest—and a large bid—from Bayern Munich, but Chelsea rejected the offer amid hopes that Hudson-Odoi might opt to sign a contract extension with the club.
