Athletic fans almost raised their hands when Ruiz de Galarreta was injured in the 81st minute in Mendizorrotza against Alavés. From September 22, the sixth matchday of the League, the Eibar midfielder did not appear on the pitch again until October 22, the tenth matchday at home to Barça.”
Valverde didn’t include him in the starting eleven at first, but Ander Herrera’s injury in the Monjtuïc warm-up hastened his return. The red and white midfielder remained on the pitch until the 67th minute, when he was replaced by Beñat Prados.
The Athletic footballer clarified yesterday that “well, I feel very well. I have done a good job recovering from the injury and due to the events of last weekend I have to start. I played 60 and some minutes and nothing. I’m in great shape physically and I’m working hard this week to get the rhythm and continuity in the game back and be motivated and ready for the weekend. Then the coach will decide.”
