Kurt Zouma is set to return from ACL injury, occurred last February, after next international break.
The French defender is in the last part of his recovery process, where he has to find his best fitness and has to gain confidence on the pitch again, and already played a couple of games with the development squad team.
Blues boss Antonio Conte revealed today that the 23-year-old started to train with the first team again in this week, but he’s not ready for top football games yetÑ
“This week Cesc Fabregas and Kurt Zouma started to train with the team,” the Italian manager claimed.
“It’s normal when you start playing after a long period of rest you need to find the best form and shape, and after the international break I think they will be available for selection.”
The official club website did, however, state that Zouma will play against Oxford in the EFL Trophy next week.
