Chelsea stars new and old respond to Reece James’ injury update

Chelsea’s Reece James has undergone successful surgery for an ankle injury he picked up earlier this summer.

The 19-year-old Blue was stretchered off during England Under-20’s Toulon Tournament defeat to Chile back in June.

It did appear like he sustained serious damage to his ankle but since he regularly posted recovery updates on his social media, the surgery did come as somewhat of a surprise.

But, James recently took to Instagram to give another update to the public and this time it was from a hospital bed after the procedure had already been done.

Despite this setback, James seems to be in good spirits if his Instagram snap is anything to go by. Many of his friends and teammates quickly swarmed his social media profiles to send their support and best wishes.

Callum Hudson-Odoi, who’s been on a recovery path of his own, definitely knows the feeling so he immediately wished James a speedy comeback in the comment section.

Chelsea legend John Terry was also there sending his best regards, among many others who also flooded to Instagram to do the same thing.
