The good news of the triangular, the return of Burgui

He had not dressed shortly for seven months due to a previous cruciate ligament operation.


Jorge Franco Alviz "Burgui" was the positive news of the triangular that played Alavés in Barakaldo yesterday afternoon. Those of Asier Garitano drew 0 with the home team (they lost 3-2 in the penalty shootout) and fell 1-0 with Athletic Bilbao, with a goal from Larrazabal, a player they sought last summer.

The positive news was the return of Burgui, who had been in the dry dock for seven months. On March 9, the anterior cruciate ligament of the knee was broken during training and, days later, it was operated by Dr. Mikel Sánchez in Vitoria. It has been seven months of suffering and recovery, of machines, physios, swimming pools and exercise bikes. Also weeks to think.

"I have matured, I think now another Burgui will be seen, a better player who will appreciate more what he has," he said in a recent interview with Diario As. A couple of weeks ago he started working with the group and yesterday already jumped to the pitch in the first 45-minute game against Barakaldo. He showed that he lacks rhythm but had some talent moves and was even the protagonist of the most dangerous shot of Alavés. For the commitment against Athletic, more demanding a priori, Garitano preferred to reserve it.

The Alavés returns to training this morning and will then be free until Monday. He waits for the clash against Celta on Sunday 20th at noon in Mendizorroza. Internationals will be returning over the next week: Burke (Scotland), Guidetti (Sweden) and Borja Sáinz (Spain U19) .
