Italy international and Tottenham Hotspur player Destiny Udogie announced his season is over following an injury, but it remains to be seen if he’ll miss EURO 2024.

The full-back confirmed the news himself with a post on his Instagram account, where he was posing in a hospital room with his mother.

“The plans of the heart belong to man, but the answer of the tongue is from the Lord,” he wrote.

“An injury brings my season to an early end. It doesn’t take away from how grateful I am to every person that has supported me this year.”

There is still no mention of the injury on the official Tottenham Hotspur website, so it is not clear what the problem is that has ended his campaign.

It is therefore not known how long he will be out for and if he will also be ruled out of this summer’s EURO 2024 tournament, where he was expected to be part of Luciano Spalletti’s Italy squad.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Spurs expect him to be out for three months, which would exclude Udogie from the Euros.

The 21-year-old was born and raised in Verona, coming through the Hellas academy before a transfer to Udinese, then was purchased by Tottenham for €18m in 2022, but left in Udine on loan for one more season.

This term he made 30 appearances for Spurs with two goals and three assists.

Udogie has three senior caps for Italy.

  1. “The plans of the heart belong to man, but the answer of the tongue is from the Lord,”???
    Best to stick to playing football than philosophy or literature.

  2. Philosophy, literature and faith ALL belong to the human spirit.
    Udogie demonstrates wisdom beyond the limited mindset of “…Best to stick to playing football…”
