LONDON (AP) — Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma has been ruled out of the European Championship after he injured his anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.
The 21-year-old Zouma, who has been capped twice by France, landed awkwardly during Sunday's 1-1 draw with Manchester United and faces six months out.
Zouma received the news Monday and wrote on Twitter: "Scan today has shown I injured my ACL. I will have surgery this week & will come back stronger."
Chelsea said in a statement that Zouma is "expected to be out for approximately six months."
