Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi has suffered a setback on his return from a hamstring injury. The 19-year-old is believed to have aggravated the problem yesterday, and there has been no timeframe given for when he will return to training.
The forward has not played since the 2-2 draw against Leicester City at the beginning of February, and it appears he could be on the sidelines for an extended period. Supporters on Twitter are very disappointed with the latest news:
Bro, our medical team better be turned inside out this Summer…crimes to answer for

Something is going on with the medical teams. Second time CHO has been injured in training. Maybe too intense? pic.twitter.com/GCS5UEd6Jk

At least it’s not the Achilles! Let’s hope it’s not too bad🙏💙

The medical team is a dumpster fire.

Hudson-Odoi is not the only player who has had complications in their recovery from injury. Tammy Abraham aggravated an ankle injury against Bayern Munich, and while the forward has said he is hopeful he’ll be back by the end of the month, there have to be questions raised over why he was playing whilst still not 100% fit anyway.
On top of that, Christian Pulisic’s groin has taken almost a month longer than expected to recover from, although the American has now confirmed he is close to making his comeback.
