Armando Broja set to make his return from injury

Armando Broja returned to light training in the summer.

The Albanian forward suffered a nasty knee injury back in December and underwent surgery.

He tore a cruciate ligament in his right knee during a friendly against Aston Villa in Abu Dhabi in December.

Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino has spoken about the importance of the club academy graduate and his eagerness to work with the young forward.

Broja has returned to light training in the summer but is yet to be involved with the first team.

His imminent return will be a boost for Pochettino as he seeks to address his team’s problem in front of goal.

Alongside Broja, Nicolas Jackson is the only natural forward in the current Chelsea lineup.

Pochettino built the squad around the 21-year-old striker as the club believes in him and wants to be careful with his development.

‘Broja has completed the recovery phase,’ Albania Football Association president Armando Duka told Euronews on Sunday.

‘We expect him to be on the bench with Chelsea this week, that is, ready to return to the field. He should normally be back in October for the Czech Republic game.

‘He is an added value for us. One of the best Albanian footballers, so he will help us.’
