Romeo Lavia sends message to fans after season-ending injury blow

Romeo Lavia has spelled out his “frustration” after having his debut season at Chelsea wrecked by injury.

Having only featured for 32 minutes after signing for £53million in the summer, the 20-year-old will not play again this season after a setback in his recovery from a thigh issue.

Chelsea confirmed the diagnosis on Wednesday, shortly followed by Lavia releasing a statement on social media.

“As you may know, despite my countless efforts, I will be missing the remainder of the season” he wrote.

“This has been a frustrating season for me, not being able to help my teammates.

“I love this squad, this badge and being on the pitch more than anything. Trust that I have given my all everyday to be back.

“Thank you for the love, support and criticism because they all affect me positively and keep me going. I can’t wait to give it back and share many special moments together. See you soon.”

Lavia suffered from a lack of match fitness after arriving from Southampton last summer before being struck by an ankle injury.

His return against Crystal Palace in late December saw him play barely half an hour before a thigh complaint struck, reinserting his name to a long list of absent stars to affect Mauricio Pochettino and Chelsea this season.
