Armando Broja has confirmed he underwent a successful surgery on Wednesday morning following an anterior cruciate ligament injury.

The 21-year-old was forced off during their 1-0 friendly defeat to Aston Villa earlier this month, falling to the floor screaming in agony while holding his right knee.

Graham Potter wasn’t positive and the scans revealed his worst fears that he suffered a rupture to the cruciate ligament.

It has ruled the Albania international out for remainder of the season, which saw him express his devastation at the huge injury setback.

Graham Potter wasn’t positive and the scans revealed his worst fears that he suffered a rupture to the cruciate ligament.

“Devastated to be ending 2022 in this way,” he wrote on Instagram last week.

“It’s been difficult to process everything over the past few days, but I am determined to come back even stronger and better than before.

“Everyone has there own journey to the top, this is just a minor setback for the good things to come in the future.

“Thank you to everyone who has sent messages of support. It means a lot. I appreciate them all. I will be back soon.”

The forward has now confirmed his road to recovery has begun after undergoing a successful operation on Wednesday.

Sharing the news on social media, he said: “Pleased to say I underwent a successful operation this morning.

“Time to rest up before starting my road to recovery.

“Thank you once again to everyone who has sent messages of support.”

Chelsea now have just two recognised centre-forwards – Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang and Kai Havertz – leaving them light in attack and potentially needing to strengthen in the January transfer window.
