It was the news all Chelsea fans were dreading, confirmation of Reece James undergoing surgery occurred yesterday and the road to recovery begins.
With reports earlier in the day speculating James will undergo surgery, the Chelsea captain took to Instagram to confirm the road to recovery himself.
Reece James said on Instagram; “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. Stay well, Reece.”
One line within the statement that stands out as a real disappointment is, “I’ve had a good amount of support but significantly more hate and negativity.”
This is not the way to treat the clubs captain who won the Champions League at his boyhood club, who has had mental struggles. Like he said himself, he doesn’t want to be injured and he knows he will have the support from true supporters.
