Ibai Gómez Returns To Training Ahead Of Mallorca Clash
Ibai Gómez was unavailable on Tuesday night as Athletic traveled to Camp Nou for a big game against Barcelona. The winger had been ruled out after missing training due to discomfort with the patellar tendon in his right knee. Fortunately, the time off has helped Gómez recover quickly.
The 30-year-old was back in training on Thursday and worked normally without any issues. In fact, Gómez has already been cleared to play this weekend against Mallorca, but it remains to be seen whether or not he will be in the squad.
Gaizka Gaizka has been relatively cautious when bringing players back from injury and with Gómez only having a minor role in the team since the season returned it’s possible that he could be left out of the squad. Either way, merely having Ibai Gómez available once again will give Athletic important depth and options in attack with important matches on the horizon.
