Boateng on the road to recovery
Jérôme Boateng has been sidelined by injury since mid-December but the 28 year-old's recovery is going well, confirmed coach Carlo Ancelotti in Friday's press conference. "We're happy, he's very focused. We hope he'll be back soon. I think he'll be able to return to training at the end of February," said the Italian. The centre-back had an operation on a torn chest muscle towards the end of last year.
