Ukraine’s international Oleksandr Zinchenko has revealed that he is ‘on his way’ to fitness for Manchester City.

At the back of his Euro 2020 achievements, the 24-year-old has only played three matches this season for the Premier League champions – including 90 minutes against RB Leipzig in the Champions League.

This is due to a calf problem that has kept the left foot sideline since mid-September.

As teammates from Etihad Stadium drove out to all four corners of the planet for World Cup qualifying service with their respective nations, the 46-cap Ukraine star remained in Manchester instead to work on a comeback for the following club matches.

Zinchenko would have acted against Finland and Bosnia-Herzegovina if he had been passed suitably.

Instead, there is a return to City against Burnley – on Saturday 16 October at the Etihad Stadium – on the cards, but will Zinchenko increase his recovery in time to play in that game?

The video Oleksandr Zinchenko posted for his 1.4 million. Followers on Instagram.

In his absence, versatile Joao Cancelo has been deployed at left-back by Pep Guardiola.

Former Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder and PSV midfielder is keen to keep City fans up to date with his current condition – with Zinchenko seen being stepped through on an exercise bike.

With a simple caption to his 1.4 million supporters, Ukraine’s defender said: “On the way.”

Ever since he was relegated to the Premier League from Russian FK UFA in 2016 – for £ 1.8 million – Zinchenko has played 103 games for City, scoring three goals and giving seven assists to his team-mates.
