Galatasaray defender Aurelian Chedjou has revealed that he expects to recover in time for the Beşiktaş derby next week.
“I feel good, I will train and see what happens, I do expect to play in the derby next week,” Chedjou told the Milliyet.
The Cameroon international has missed the Lions last two games due to a thigh muscle strain.
Chedjou has only featured in one of Galatasaray’s last five league games.
The experienced defender joined Galatasaray on a £5.5 million move from Lille in 2013 and has made a total of 68 appearances for the Lions.
The Lions have kept a clean sheet in their last five league games despite having the worst defensive record in the top four.
Galatasaray are currently first in the Süper Lig, three points clear of second placed Fenerbahçe and seven points clear of third placed Beşiktaş.
However, Beşiktaş do have a game in hand and will close the gap with Galatasaray to four points with a win against Konyaspor today.
