Herrera and Vrsaljko work with the group watching Villarreal

The Mexican has overcome the coronavirus and the Croatian has missed the last two games. A group of fans came to cheer on the team.


Atlético returned to work after enjoying a day off after the Champions League defeat against Chelsea, where the team played at home, but did so having to travel to Bucharest. And Simeone had good news in the first training session to prepare for next Sunday's match against Villarreal (21:00).

El Cholo already has Héctor Herrera back, who has missed the last five commitments after contracting the coronavirus. The Mexican was the only one of the six recently infected players who had not tested negative, but this morning he received authorization from LaLiga to rejoin the dynamics of the group thanks to the level of antibodies he presented in the last test that was performed. . Herrera had been very important at the beginning of the course, taking a position in the center of the field with Koke and giving the team balance and speed of play. However, two muscle injuries and COVID-19 have caused Herrera to have only been able to play six minutes in Cádiz in the last 12 league games, in addition to missing the Cup and two other Champions League matches.

Along with the Mexican, Vrsaljko, who had been absent in the last two losses due to annoyance, also returned to group dynamics. The Croatian started the visit to Levante, but after being substituted he could not participate in the second game against the Granota team or against Chelsea. Something that forces Simeone to turn to Llorente as a right lane while Trippier counts the days to end his penalty (Sunday is the last day). Those who are not yet available are Carrasco, who suffered "a post-traumatic injury to the muscles of his left leg" in the first game against Levante and Giménez, with a muscle injury in the second game against the granotas. The note of color in the training was put by a group of fans who came to cheer on the team with flares.
