Late Thursday evening, an update on Chelsea star Edouard Mendy’s fitness was provided.
This comes after the Senegalese, who had reestablished himself as first-choice between the posts in west London prior to the World Cup break, was forced to sit out for an extended period of time.
Following a shoulder injury, Mendy underwent surgery to treat a finger injury around the turn of the year.
The 31-year-old, whose future at Stamford Bridge is uncertain due to a contract dispute, has been forced to relinquish no.1 status to Kepa Arrizabalaga once more.
If the latest word stemming from the media on Thursday is anything to go by, however, then Mendy should not have to wait too much longer to kick his battle with Kepa back into gear.
This comes amid reports that the former Stade Rennais star is close to returning to the field.
According to a Daily Mail report:
‘Edouard Mendy hopes to resume full training within the next two weeks,’ he says.
