Chelsea midfielder Marco van Ginkel is set to be out of action for eight months after undergoing a knee injury.

The 25-year-old went under the knife to fix a cruciate injury and will be out of at least eight months in a major blow.

Van Ginkel first damaged his cruciate ligament in 2013 and has endured a history of knee issues ever since.

Chelsea released a statement confirming the surgery was a success.

It read: “Marco van Ginkel has undergone a procedure relating to the revision reconstruction of his anterior cruciate ligament and treatment of chondral damage in his knee.

“The expected recovery time is approximately eight months.”
