Giménez arrives just in time

The Uruguayan returns to the group after overcoming the muscular injury that has left him out of four games. He could be a starter due to the sanction of Felipe. Héctor Herrera has also returned.


Atlético returned to training after the victory against Athletic and Simeone has good news. Giménez is already back, having overcome the muscle injury that has left him out of the last four games. The Uruguayan arrives just in time, with Chelsea just around the corner (Wednesday 17) and, if he is physically fit, to play this Saturday in Getafe.

Felipe saw the fifth yellow against Athletic and that opens a gap in the eleven. Cholo is using three center-backs on a regular basis, although Hermoso sometimes acts as a winger, so the Brazilian's sanction disrupts his plans, unless he sees Giménez ready to play. This Saturday it will have been three weeks since the Uruguayan suffered, against Levante, this injury to the adductor muscles of the left thigh.Héctor Herrera, also with the group

Hector Herrera has also returned to the team. The Mexican rushed to Mexico due to the death of his mother and, after missing the last two games, he has rejoined the group. The midfielder has only been able to play 6 minutes so far in 2021, as he has also suffered the coronavirus and a muscle injury that stopped him cold, when in autumn he was giving a good level.

For the headlines against Athletic there was the usual recovery session in the gym. This Friday the coaching staff will have the last session before the visit to Getafe on Saturday (21:00).
