CHELSEA striker Armando Broja has confirmed that he has undergone surgery on his anterior cruciate ligament injury.
Broja, 21, suffered a season-ending ACL injury during Chelsea's 1-0 Al Wahda Challenge Cup defeat to Aston Villa in Abu Dhabi earlier this month.
But on Wednesday he took to social media to give fans a positive update after undergoing surgery.
He wrote: "Pleased to say I underwent a successful operation this morning.
"Time to rest up before starting my road to recovery. Thank you once again to everyone who has sent messages of support."
Broja has struggled to adapt to life at Stamford Bridge since returning from his season-long loan at Southampton.
