New Chelsea signing Tiemoue Bakayoko hinted to a close return on the pitch with a post on social media.
The French midfielder was still recovering from a knee surgery he underwent last May when he signed for Chelsea some weeks ago and didn’t even take part to the Asian tour to follow a better recovery program in Cobham.
But a message he posted on Twitter this morning revealed we will see him playing soon: according to some rumours, he could be even on the bench in the Community Shield clash against Arsenal next Sunday, ready for his Chelsea debut.
Antonio Conte replied like this when asked about the return of his injured players after Inter game last Saturday:
“We will not rush them back as every player must be in the best of form to play, otherwise they are put in a bad position which could be damaging for the team.”
