Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger is currently in Dubai where he is recovering from a knee injury.
Rudiger has not featured for the Blues since limping out of a 1-1 draw away to Manchester United at the end of April and he is set to miss Chelsea’s Premier League opener against Manchester United. He may also miss the UEFA Super Cup against Liverpool on August 14.
Both Chelsea and Rudiger are cautious about rushing back the defender.
Rudiger took to Instagram on Friday to share videos of himself on an exercise bike and in a swimming pool.
He also uploaded a picture of himself stretching with the caption: “Rehab is going well — more motivated than ever to #comebackstronger”.
With Frank Lampard set to become Chelsea’s new boss, Rudiger will be hoping to return on time to impress the new boss.
