Billy Gilmour out for Four Months

Billy Gilmour will be out for four months and he is not expected back in training until October.

Chelsea Manager Frank Lampard confirmed the setback today while having his press conference via video link.

"Billy Gilmour's had an operation on his knee this morning, unfortunately, so he'll be out, we estimate, for somewhere between three and four months," 

"I'm obviously very disappointed, we all are and Billy is himself," 

“I spoke with him yesterday [Thursday] at length and just gave him support, really.


"He's a tough boy. It hit him hard – I get that as well, particularly as a younger player who's just made his breakthrough in recent times and was doing so well – but it's part of football and I tried to explain he can be very pleased with the impact he's had this season.


"Part of our job as players is to get on with these things and learn our lesson quickly and his attitude will get him back as quick as he possibly can.


"His character is fantastic. Particularly with his age, the personality he has shown in getting in and around the first-team squad, getting himself into the team, I'm very sure he'll show the same character and do everything right with the rehab and tackle it.


"He's got a close-knit family around him who'll be there for him and we're his family too, we'll be there for him and the small bonus is it will hopefully cover a period that's off-season and pre-season, so he's maybe not missing as many games as he might have done."
