Former Chelsea youngster Tino Livramento suffered an anterior cruciate ligament knee injury at Brighton on Sunday.

The 19-year-old full-back received oxygen on the pitch and was stretchered off in the first half of that game.

Southampton has confirmed that the defender is set to be sidelined for the rest of the 2022 season after having a breakout season with them in the Premier League.

A statement from the club read on Wednesday: “Southampton can regrettably confirm Tino Livramento has suffered an ACL injury and is likely to be sidelined for the remainder of the year.

“Livramento will now undergo surgery before beginning rehab. Although there is no definitive timescale on his return, it is likely he will be unavailable for the remainder of 2022.

“Everyone at the club sends their very best wishes to Tino and will be doing everything to support him throughout each step of his recovery.”

Chelsea sold Livramento to Southampton last summer, and the Blues do have a buyback clause of £28 million that can be exercised from 2023 onwards.

We wish Tino Livramento well.
