Chelsea star Callum Hudson-Odoi detailed the struggles he will have to make to get back into action after the severe Achilles injury he sustained in April 2019.
Chelsea's Callum Hudson-Odoi shared his long-lasting injury resilience and excitement over Tuesday's Champions League clash with Atletico Madrid.Hudson-Odoi spent no less than 141 days on the sidelines in 2019 with a broken Achilles tendon,one of the most dangerous injuries for players.
The 20-year-old missed just 11 games with injury in April 2019 and spent the summer recuperating before returning shortly after the start of last season.But the trip back to grass was difficult for Hudson-Odoi and he has paid a lot of credit to the Chelsea medical staff for getting it right.The injury was obviously uncomfortable for me because it took a very, very long time to recover,he recalls on the club website.It is one injury that may take years to recover because it is a big injury.
You lose a lot of calf muscles, you definitely lose a little bit of speed and so on,so I work a lot with the team and my family at home,trying to get back to what I'm doing now to be in good shape and able to run,as usual I run with muscles. behind the calf,which is a big deal.I've been working really hard off the pitch trying to get all my muscle and strength back and get everything back to the way it was before I was injured.Everyone's doing a great job trying to get me back as soon as possible,and I feel like I'm back where I belonged.
I've never had a real injury like this or even had surgery so it was something new for me and definitely a big challenge.It's a huge failure to know that everything is going so well,that the semi-finals of the Europa League and other things are coming.It was tough,but I convinced myself that everything happens for a reason.
God justifies everything you do,so I'm happy with who I am now and I hope to keep growing and moving forward.Hudson-Odoi last started on the Chelsea bench against Southampton and made headlines after joining as a substitute before being sent off shortly thereafter.Whatever the reasons for this change,he will hope to play a bigger role against Atletico Madrid on Tuesday,a game he is looking forward to.
"I'm really excited!For the Champions League,This is a great game against Atletico which we know are a great team and are doing very well this season.We want to start this match with the mentality of trying to win and" trying to move on to the next round.The match will be different from what we expected,going to Romania, not Spain,but it will be good for us too.
We all know football is a crazy sport and it can go well.You can win for a while and lose the next, especially in the Champions League.Our aim is to give him everything we have and see if we can do it.
