The French defender is closing in on a return to action for the Chelsea first team
Kurt Zouma has taken to social media to thank Chelsea fans for their support after he returned to action for the Blues’ development squad on Monday night.
The French defender has been out of action since suffering a serious knee injury during the Premier League clash with Manchester United back in February.
Zouma is yet to make an appearance for Antonio Conte’s first team this season since the Italian was appointed as Jose Mourinho’s permanent successor earlier in the year.
However, it now appears that the French defender is closing in on a return to action for the Blues after he featured from the start during the 2-2 draw with Derby County on Monday.
After the game, Zouma posted the picture above on his personal Instagram account and wrote: “Thanks for all the messages & support – good to be back on the pitch tonight 🙏🏾 @chelseafc”
Chelsea’s first team are currently preparing for their League Cup fourth-round clash against bitter rivals West Ham United on Wednesday night at the London Stadium.
The Blues were 4-0 winners over Manchester United on Sunday at Stamford Bridge.
