The Algeria international was delighted to be back kicking about after missing nine months of footballing action

Napoli's Faouzi Ghoulam has hinted at a comeback sooner rather than later.

The 27-year-old has yet to return to action since he tore his anterior cruciate ligament in a Uefa Champions League encounter against Manchester City last November.

Despite returning ahead of schedule in January, the former Saint Etienne left-back suffered a relapse, fracturing his kneecap during a session in February.

Yet to feature for new manager Carlo Ancelotti, Ghoulam took to Twitter to share a positive update accompanied with a clip of keepy-uppy

“[I’m] happy to be able to play again and touch the ball,” Ghoulam tweeted.

However, it is yet to be known if the wing-back will be available for selection when Napoli play Fiorentina in their next Series A encounter after the international break.
