Chelsea Football Club can confirm striker Sam Kerr has sustained an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury during our warm weather training camp in Morocco.

Sam will be assessed by a specialist in the coming days and then begin her rehabilitation with the club’s medical team.

The Australia international signed for the Blues in 2019 and has gone on to score 99 goals in 128 matches.

She has played a pivotal role in four Women’s Super League title wins, three FA Cup triumphs, two Women’s League cup victories, and the Women’s Community Shield in 2020.

Everyone at Chelsea would like to wish Sam the very best for her recovery.
