It had long been known that Christopher Nkunku was coming to Chelsea, and so we were keeping a close eye on him all of last year. About a year ago he made a return from injury to rejoin the RB Leipzig squad, and we watched his much celebrated return to the training field.
Now we get to experience the same ourselves. Yesterday Nkunku joined his first training session with the team, bringing the agonising 6 month wait for his competitive debut to a climax. With the team in dire straits, the need for a saviour has grown to almost religious levels.
There’s plenty of other footage of the rather muted action at training.
