Kone is still some way off full fitness

Roberto Martinez has indicated that it will be a few weeks before Arouna Kone is fully fit after the striker failed to capitalise on some good opportunities in the League Cup tie with Stevenage last night.

Kone appeared jaded throughout his pre-season performances, not helped by observing Ramadan which meant he had to fast during the hours of daylight, and after he missed three open goals last night, his manager said that his main summer acquisition to date is not yet match sharp.

I think it'll be a couple of weeks before Arouna is fully fit. It think that will be just the normal time.

He's not far away physically from his best moment last season. But it's been a testing summer for him with Ramadan and his personal situation.

I thought when he came on Saturday he showed he is ready and desperate to perform. I don't think he's too far away from being at his best level.
