Reece James breaks silence after his hamstring injury

Chelsea captain Reece James has undergone a hamstring surgery.

The 24-year-old suffered a hamstring injury in the 3-0 defeat by Everton a few weeks back.

He underwent an operation to resolve his recurring hamstring issues and this will be his third hamstring problem within the space of 12 months.

The previous hamstring injury ruled him out for eight matches and his struggles have been well documented over the past two seasons.

He also missed the World Cup in Qatar last year due to knee ligament damage.

James is now expected to miss three to four months of action and his place in the Euro 2024 appears to be in doubt.

In an emotional message, James wrote: “The footballing world knew I got injured but the procedure I would go down this time took slightly longer to figure out the best solution.

“I had surgery today to try fix my reoccurring hamstring issue, the recovery has started, both physically and mentally.

“Since this injury I’ve had a good amount of support but significantly more hate and negativity. Believe me I don’t wanna be injured, I’m happiest when I’m playing football. Thanks to the understanding people that support me despite the highs or the lows, it goes a long way.”
