Wesley Fofana has seemingly returned to Chelsea’s training ground following his injury layoff.
Fofana uploaded a photo to his Snapchat story with two pairs of trainers on the floor next to his right leg.
Underneath, the caption ‘Done’ with a green tick next to it.
There is also a strip of blue in the top right-hand corner.
Fofana fights against injury
Now, we are not claiming to be Sherlock Holmes, but the clues do point towards the Fofana’s homecoming to Cobham.
The defender has been recovering from a knee injury he picked up against AC Milan at the beginning of October.
He and fellow side-lined star Reece James jetted off at the end of last month to Dubai to continue their rehabilitation.
James too recently appeared to share an update of his progress, with a cryptic post including the quote: ‘‘It’s a crowd when it’s time to party but when it’s time to put that work in it get lonely…’.
His recovery sounds like its further along than Fofana’s, as the full-back reportedly had high hopes of making the World Cup.
Gareth Southgate decided against including James in his 26-man England squad, to the obvious disappointment to the player himself.
Meanwhile, Fofana had no chance of being selected for the French team, who have lost many wounded soldiers along the way to the tournament.
But if he and James can be available after the World Cup, Chelsea might be able to rediscover their own good luck.
