Hodei Oleaga Recalled From Loan With Melilla
Nearly two months after Athletic’s last training session at Lezama the first team is finally preparing to return. The club has announced that players will undergo medical testing at the club facilities on Thursday and those who are cleared will be able to start training individually at Lezama.
A total of 29 players will undergo testing, as well as coaches and other essential staff needed to conduct training. Athletic listed all players who will be screened and one name came as a bit of a surprise. Hodei Oleaga, who has spent the season on loan with Melilla in the Tercera, has been recalled by Athletic.
Recalling Oleaga may seem odd at first glance, but Melilla’s season is effecively over. The remaining games in the Tercera have been canceled and Melilla won’t be competing in the promotional playoffs. Bring Hodei Oleaga back will allow the goalkeeper to train with the first team and, more importantly, return home as the health crisis continues.
