Óscar Gil avoids the operating room

Injured in the left shoulder against Albacete, Espanyol does not specify the time off of the right-hand side, the only natural left in the squad.


It was expected throughout Tuesday, as the player himself had announced on social networks that it was the day chosen to undergo tests, a conclusive diagnosis about Óscar Gil's injury. But Espanyol issued a statement late at night, the only reading of which is that the right-hand side should not undergo surgery after injuring his left shoulder. For the rest, absolute ambiguity: "Its evolution will be the one that marks its availability" .

Gil was injured when he fell into a bad posture on the pitch during a struggle with Manu Fuster, shortly after the second half of Albacete-Espanyol started. Participant in 25 games of this Smartbank League (plus another in the Copa del Rey, against Osasuna), the man from Elche had become indisputable on the right wing since last February 14 his demarcation partner Miguelón Llambrich broke his anterior rectum. in Son Moix and had to be operated on.

Gil had five consecutive titles, seven if the parenthesis of Espanyol-Oviedo is not counted, in which he was absent due to annoyances that had prevented him from training all week. On that occasion, his emergency substitute was a central defender, Lluís López, although the position ended up being occupied in the final minutes by an attacker like Javi Puado.

Now, although I do not know the exact extent of the injury, Espanyol needs a stable solution, like Omar El Hilali, the youth squad and right-hander who debuted in his place at Carlos Belmonte, who is emerging as a natural successor for the next few days , starting with Leganés' visit to Cornellà this coming Sunday.
