Monaco forward Stevan Jovetic has returned to full training with the team after injury.

The Montenegrin, who scored twice in February 10’s 4-0 win over Angers, was a late withdrawal from last Friday’s clash with Dijon after suffering a muscle injury in the warm-up.

His replacement Keita Balde opened the scoring as ASM won by the same scoreline again and competition for places up front is hotting up.

A club statement on Thursday announced Jovetic had “trained normally” ahead of Saturday’s clash with Toulouse, while Radamel Falco “is progressing well and continuing his rehabilitation” from a thigh problem.

Goalkeeper Diego Benaglio remains sidelined by a leg injury.
