PSG will resume club football after the international break without Warren Zaïre-Emery, who has been ruled out due to injury, and the return of Marco Asensio is a boost to the Ligue 1 giants.

Le Parisien reports that the former Real Madrid attacker resumed light training with the team following a month-long absence.

Having been out of action for the past four weeks due to a foot injury he sustained in Spain’s 7-1 victory against Cyprus in the September international break, and the Spanish international has begun his recovery.

The former Real Madrid attacking midfielder, who joined the Paris club on a free transfer, missed out on playing for his nation in the latest international break due to an injury.

With his return to at least light training, things look more promising for the Spaniard.

He has resumed ball work in training ahead of a full return to training with the PSG first team.

Even though he’s training alone, he is expected to return to full training in the coming days.

Having impressed at the Parc des Princes since he switched from Real Madrid on a free transfer, this will be good news to Luis Enrique, who was initially under pressure as his team is yet to click.

Enrique could still deploy the 27-year-old from the in a false nine role, which has seen him excel despite his injury disruptions to date.

So far, from just three games for Les Parisiens, Asensio has scored two goals and assisted one for the Ligue 1 champions.

Meanwhile, on Saturday, 17-year-old Zaïre-Emery will likely be rested for PSG’s upcoming Ligue 1 match against Strasbourg.

As he recovers from an ankle injury, he picked up during Les Bleuets’ emphatic 9-0 victory against Cyprus in the international break.

PSG won’t want to take a risk with him having returned to the PSG training, and the Les Bleuets’ training staff remain confident that the injury he sustained is not serious.
