Gini Wijnaldum begins training with the ball

Gini WIjnaldum is making concrete steps toward a full recovery in January.

Wijnaldum – one of the club’s big summer signings – continues to recover from a fracture he suffered in training on 22 August. 

The Dutchman suffered the blow during the final portion of a late August training session which sidelined him for nearly five months.

But, according to several reports from Italy, Wijnaldum has accelerated his rehab work, with the objective of shortening the recovery ahead of his long-awaited return which should take place sometime in January.

As demonstrated on his latest Instagram post, the ex-Liverpool man has returned to training with the ball and is now conducting regular individual training meant to improve his condition ahead of the team’s trip to Portugal. Wijnaldum will travel with Mourinho’s men but won’t participate in group training activities.
