By: Manu Tournoux

Tricolor international striker Christopher Nkunku admitted to having experienced a difficult period during his absence from the field after a knee injury.

Scorer against Wolverhampton (1-2) on Sunday, Chritsopher Nkunku played his second Premier League match with Chelsea this Wednesday in the victory against Crystal Palace (2-1) this Thursday.

Aligned from the start against the Eagles, the French striker played 71 minutes before being replaced by Noni Madueke in the second half. Mauricio Pochettino, the Blues coach, preferred to play it safe with the player, who was making his return after an absence due to a knee injury sustained during summer preparation.

The French international, who arrived at Stamford Bridge this summer from RB Leipzig for an amount estimated at 60 million euros, also spoke about his difficult convalescence period.

“It was really difficult, to be honest, to have this injury just before the start of the season,” Nkunku told the Chelsea FC media. But afterward, you have to concentrate and work hard in order to come back. I did it and I am now happy, I think the future will be good. »
