Crocked Sassuolo star Kevin-Prince Boateng has stepped up his recovery by returning to light training on Wednesday.

The 32-year-old has been out of action since suffering a muscular injury in the 2-1 defeat to against Parma last month.

It has been said that Boateng will stay out for between 40 and 50 days meaning he is set to be out until 2019.

But the former Ghana international maybe back sooner after stepping unto the pitch to do individual work as his teammates prepared for their weekend clash against Torino.

Boateng has scored four goals in 11 appearances so far for the Neroverdi in the Italian Serie A campaign.
