Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy says he is doing all he can to return to fitness as quickly as possible after picking up an injury on international duty.
The 28-year-old returned to Cobham for treatment after sustaining a thigh injury during a training session with Senegal last week. He took to Instagram yesterday to thank supporters for their support, as well as vowing to make his comeback soon:
Some reports suggest that Mendy will miss the game against Southampton on Saturday, with the keeper having a more realistic chance of returning for the Champions League group match versus Sevilla the following week.
If that is the case, manager Frank Lampard will need to pick from either Kepa Arrizabalaga or Willy Caballero for the weekend’s game at Stamford Bridge.
Were Kepa to be overlooked, it would certainly suggest that the Spaniard will be shipped out at the earliest possible opportunity when the transfer window reopens in January.
