Pochettino shares major Nkunku update ahead of Brentford clash. Chelsea fans will love this
Christopher Nkunku may be available to play for Chelsea sooner than later, according to Mauricio Pochettino.
The France International has not kicked a ball for Chelsea all season after picking up a knee injury in pre-season.
He’s been working hard to return, and that could happen soon, after he was recently spotted training at Cobham.
Speaking ahead of Chelsea’s clash with Brentford, Pochettino said of the forward: “He’s doing well and working really hard. He’s very close. Hopefully we can have him involved as soon as possible.
“He is a really important player for us.”
On the prospect of a November debut, the manager also said: “Maybe [he’ll be back] after the international break. Maybe, but not sure.”
