Italy international and Tottenham Hotspur player Destiny Udogie has been dealt a devastating blow as he announced the premature end of his season due to injury.

While the severity of the injury remains undisclosed, uncertainty looms over his participation in EURO 2024.

Player Confirmation on Social Media

Taking to his Instagram account, Udogie confirmed the unfortunate news, sharing a photo of himself alongside his mother in a hospital room. In his post, he expressed gratitude for the support he has received and acknowledged the unpredictable nature of life's plans.

Despite Udogie's announcement, there has been no official statement from Tottenham Hotspur regarding the injury. The lack of clarity surrounding the nature of the injury leaves fans and pundits speculating about its impact and duration.

EURO 2024 Participation Uncertain

With his season cut short, questions arise regarding Udogie's availability for EURO 2024.

Throughout the season, Udogie has been a valuable asset for Tottenham, making 30 appearances and contributing two goals and three assists. His versatility and skill have made him an integral part of the squad, and his absence will undoubtedly be felt by the team.

International Considerations

Despite being eligible to represent Nigeria through his ancestry, Udogie has opted to play for Italy, earning three senior caps. His injury not only impacts Tottenham but also raises concerns for the Italian national team, potentially affecting their plans for EURO 2024.

Destiny Udogie's season-ending injury marks a disappointing turn of events for both the player and Tottenham Hotspur.
