Athletic ‘regain’ Ander Herrera


Athletic ‘recovered’ Ander Herrera. The midfielder is having a difficult time on his return to Bilbao after his stints in Manchester and Paris. Muscle injuries have prevented him from having the necessary continuity to contribute to the team as much as he would like.

On Saturday he played again in the visit of Espanyol. He did it in the second half substituting Daniel Garcia in the 79th minute just after Nico Williams marked 0-2, the goal that finally served to add the three points from then Sergi Darder He cut the distances to the edge of the regulation time. ’23’ was seen looking forward to it, although logically it is not easy to perform at a high level after almost two and a half months without playing and possibly there is the fear of a repeat that always happens in such situations. He played his last game on January 29 against Celta in Balaídos and he returned to work with his teammates on March 27.

His last physical setback began on February 10 when he suffered an injury to the right semitendinosus muscle. This is the fifth. The previous four, made in September, October, November and December, prevented him for a total of 58 days, according to data provided by the club in a statement issued on March 3. Ibaigane wanted to clarify then that verified by entity through a sporting aptitude test that the player was fit for all purposes when he arrived on loan from PSG at the end of August.


The footballer himself expressed his regret in a statement released on his social networks on March 3 and he even admitted that he was about to leave football. “I am going through, without a doubt, the most difficult moment of my career. Over a year ago I started having recurring muscle problems from which I could not recover. For someone like me, who is passionate about his profession and enjoys it very much every day, it is very difficult. I feel the same energy and enthusiasm for football as I have felt throughout my career, but injuries do not allow me to have fun and be happy”, said the text that raised a lot of dust.

“I feel that at Athletic Club I have everything I need to become one and I am suffering even more. I am surrounded by professionals who never stop showing me their help and support, and peers who are like no other. Sometimes, it occurred to me to throw in the towel but I couldn’t forgive myself. We want to teach our daughters to persevere and to overcome obstacles that may be found along the way, and that is exactly the opposite. I will continue looking for solutions and working to return to doing what I like the most and return the love of the people around me”, he concluded.

The player is now in a position to fulfill it. He has been training with complete normalcy with his teammates and on Saturday he played a quarter of an hour. Now he has ten games ahead of him to get the thorn in a very complicated campaign.
