Average problems have accumulated for Athletic


Midfield problems are piling up for Valverde ahead of tomorrow’s match against Almería. The red and white coach, in fact, did not get the help of Vesga, Ander Herrera, Ruiz de Galarreta and Unai Gómez yesterday. The first two have not been ruled out for the league clash before the new break in the competition. The last two, yes.

Mikel Jauregizar’s presence again with the first team could serve as a clue to the intentions of the Gasteiz coach in case he cannot recover the aforementioned midfielders. The 19-year-old midfielder from Bilbao has been Gurpegi’s starter for Bilbao Athletic in five games played. The Navarrese coach knows him well because of their joint career last season at Basconia.

Last Saturday, against Valle de Egües, Jauregizar shared the midfield with Gerenabarrena with Ibón Sánchez up front. Bita, who spent part of the preseason with the first team and even last season came under Valverde at times, was relegated to the bench. We will have to wait to see how today and tomorrow’s training sessions go to remove any doubts. The boy, by the way, also went up one day last week to train with the lions.

High and low

The medical report released yesterday by Athletic regarding the condition of Vesga and Ander Herrera stated that the man from Gasteiz suffered “a chest contusion” which prevented him from playing in the Anoeta derby and the Bilbao native suffered ” a contusion on his right. leg.” Unai Gómez also did not participate in this session. The one who did it was Nolaskoain, although apart from the group and under the supervision of Xabi Clemente. The versatile lion thus enters the final stages of recovery from “a sprain of the external lateral ligament in his right knee.”

Guruzeta should also be added to the training casualty list this Tuesday morning. The San Sebastian striker was replaced at half-time of last Saturday’s derby in Anoeta because, as Valverde himself explained, “a collision with Zubeldia and in that collision he had a knee problem.” From Ibaigane, in any case, there is no medical report regarding the situation of Athletic’s starting striker in the last days of the league.

Sancet, once his suspension against Real for the dismissal he suffered against Getafe in the last match at San Mamés has been completed, is once again in a position to line up. The coach from Gasteiz, waiting for what will happen today about the state of the lions affected, is currently counted as midfielders for the clash the next day against Almería with Navarrese, Dani García, Beñat Prados, Muniain and Jauregizar himself.
