Chelsea FC defender Ola Aina is eager to get back to the pitch as the kickoff to the new 2017/2018 season beckons, AOIFootball.com reports.
The Super Eagles’ prospect, who featured sparingly for the English champions last season, hopes to get more game time this season under manager Antonio Conte.
Aina displayed his intent to play football more this term when he took to his official Instagram page to post a picture of himself in training kits on the pitch with a ball.
“I’ve rested enough…” Aina posted.
Aina is one of the players already listed by Conte for the preseason billed to kickoff this week.
The Blues will head to the Far East where they will play games against Arsenal at the Bird’s Nest in China and then Bayern Munich and Inter Milan in Singapore, in a three way mini-tournament.
