When Reece James got off injured against AC Milan, it appeared to be a serious one.

However, James and Graham Potter played it down afterwards that it wasn’t as bad as first feared.

Recent reports have revealed that although it isn’t that bad, it’s not too good either, as the in-form right-back is expected to be out for around eight weeks.

Reece James has now sent out a message to his fans.

In his tweet sent after the news that he could be out of action for up to eight weeks, James wrote: “The race against time is on… But we won’t give up.”

The World Cup starts in five weeks time, and for Reece James who is having an amazing time for club and country, it’s indeed a race against time.
