Chelsea star Mount posts injury update from hospital after undergoing surgery


Mason Mount took to Instagram to update his followers after undergoing a ‘minor procedure’ to alleviate the ‘discomfort’ he had been experiencing in his lower abdomen.

Mount’s abdomen issue was first brought to light in March when he missed Chelsea’s Premier League clash with Leeds United – which the Blues ended up winning 1-0 thanks to Wesley Fofana.

Speaking about the issue at the time, Graham Potter said: ‘Mason has had a problem with his lower abdomen area, pubic bone so he will miss the game tomorrow, don’t think if it will be too long but too soon for tomorrow. ‘

However, the England international continued to feel ‘discomfort’ in his lower abdomen and decided to go under the knife on Tuesday morning to alleviate the issue.

Mount took to Instagram shortly after to say ‘everything went well’ and that he was ‘feeling good’ but interim manager Frank Lampard said it’s like he’ll miss the rest of the season.

Nevertheless, Mount shared a post on social media saying he is excited to ‘get back to training in the coming weeks’.

Mount took to Instagram to share a picture of himself dressed in a hospital gown while sitting upright in his bed following Tuesday’s operation.

The midfielder wrote the accompanying caption: ‘Had a minor procedure yesterday to sort out a discomfort I had for a while.

‘Everything went well and I’m feeling good. Time to rest but can’t wait to get back to training in the coming weeks!

‘Thanks for all your messages of support and a massive thank you to the medical team, doctors and nurses for looking after me.’

Lampard is concerned Mount could be out for the remainder of the season but did suggest the midfielder could be fit in time for their final game of the 2022-2023 campaign.

This fixture will see Chelsea host high-flying Newcastle on May 28th to wrap up a disappointing Premier League game for the club.

Questions remain over Mount’s future in west London, with recent reports linking the England international with a potential move away from Stamford Bridge.

Mount – who has been with the Blues since the age of six – is yet to extend his deal with the club ahead of it expiring in the summer of 2024.

Mount has also struggled to pitch-tune under former manager Potter and current interim manager Lampard. Therefore, he may look to move away.

Premier League rival Arsenal and Liverpool are both rumoured to be interested in signing the 24-year-old in the summer transfer window.

However, Chelsea co-owner Todd Boehly reportedly held direct talks with Mount last week over his future, in what is viewed as a positive development.
