Chelsea’s Champions League preparations were boosted as David Luiz and Gary Cahill returned to training but Florent Malouda remains ‘touch and go’ for the Munich showpiece.
Blues manager Roberto Di Matteo told a press conference that Luiz and Cahill, who have not played for several weeks, were ready to train again as they battle to be fit for Saturday’s clash with Bayern Munich. “Gary and David are going to try to train with us,” Di Matteo said of the two centre-halves. However, Di Matteo was less upbeat about Malouda, who limped off during Chelsea’s Premier League victory over Blackburn on Sunday. “Flo, we’ll still assess and it’s going to be touch and go for him to be available for Saturday,” he said.
