Jean-Paul Kalala back training with Southend United
JEAN-PAUL Kalala is back training with Southend United.
The 30-year-old midfielder was released by Blues boss Paul Sturrock at the end of last season after a knee injury cut short his campaign.
But he has now returned to the club.
“Kalala is back for the physio to have a look at him and asses his fitness,” said Sturrock.
“He had a knee injury last season and he still has some work to do but who knows what will happen now.
“His knee is an aspect as it is not totally back to normal yet.
“The results show he was very influential for us last season but we will have to wait and see what happens.
Kalala made 30 appearances for Blues last season before suffering a serious knee injury during the 1-0 defeat at Morecambe in February.
