Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has revealed he hopes to give Chelsea new signing Ross Barkley his Chelsea debut quickly.
Barkley is yet to play competitive football this season after recovering from a long-term injury and Conte admitted he doesn’t know when Barkley will be fully fit.
“I don’t know when he will be fit,” Conte said of Barkley.
“On Saturday he started to work with the fitness coach. From Monday I’ll see him and then I will start to prepare a programme to have him playing quickly.
“It’s important for me to assess his physical condition and then to try to improve his condition and for him to work with us and our ideas.
“My hope is to have this player very quickly.”
