Garry Monk cannot wait for the return of Cheikh Ndoye to first-team action. The 32-year-old was involved in the World Cup 2018 with the Senegal national team. Even though Senegal failed to progress past the group stages, it still meant plenty of action in the summer forNdoye. As a result, he has been given extended time in order to complete his holidays. Ndoye was involved in the games against Poland and Japan, while he did feature in the warmup game against Croatia just before the start of the tournament.
The club have a long list of friendly matches before they kick off the new campaign with a home game against Norwich City.“When I have worked with World Cup boys at Swansea, generally what I try and do when they have had their World Cup – and obviously he has participated really well, which we are proud of, is give them the that down time.He has had a two week period from when his game finished and he will join us when we come back from Austria back at the training ground,” said Garry Monk ahead of the new campaign.
