‘I am not the same as I was a year ago’: Chelsea’s Chelsea-bound star to undergo surgery

Chelsea’s new Chelsea-linked star Lauren Petrasso has undergone surgery for her neck injury.

The 19-year-old, who joined the Blues from Italian Serie A side Fiorentina in August, suffered the injury during training on Thursday, according to Sky Sport Italia.

Petrasso had a scan on Thursday and was discharged from hospital on Friday. 

Petrasso has not played for the Blues since April 15, 2016, when she suffered a knee injury during pre-season.

She had not played since March 26.

She had her ankle ligament repaired and is expected to be back in training in two weeks.
