VfB Stuttgart coach Pellegrino Matarazzo has provided a fresh fitness update on Silas Katompa Mvumpa.


Katompa Mvumpa made his return from a long-term injury as he came on with five minutes left of Friday's 2-1 win over Mainz.

However, according to Matarazzo, the 23-year-old still needs a bit of time to get back to full fitness.

"He will still need a few weeks to get back to full strength. That's quite normal after such an injury," Matarazzo told Kicker:

"I was aware that the fans would get involved when Silas came on. But it wasn't just about the atmosphere for me. It was about giving Silas a few minutes and building him up for the coming weeks."
