Argentine forward Leo Ulloa, injured serious February 12, you are in the last phase of your recovery Y this week, already integrated to the group, is completing Rayo Vallecano’s training at the same pace as their peers to prepare the match against Tenerife, of the fifth day of the Spanish second division.
Ulloa suffered a tear of the anterior cruciate ligament and the internal ligament of the left knee during a workout and from For almost eight months he has been out without competing.
This week, Ulloa, champion of the English League with Leicester in 2016, has returned to training with the group and his return to competition is closer, although from the club they want to be cautious due to the long period of inactivity accumulated by the Argentine player.
Andoni Iraola, the new Rayo technician, counts on the Argentine for this season and hopes that he will be an important man, since as a center forward he only has him together with the French-Moroccan Yacine Qasmi.
For the match against Tenerife, Andoni Iraola has numerous casualties for international commitments with their national teams. The Peruvian side is not available Luis Advíncula and the Macedonian archer Stole Dimitrievski, as well as the extreme Antoñín and the side Fran garcia, both with the Spanish sub-21.
The loss of Advíncula will force Andoni Iraola to trust the squad player Mario Hernández for the eleven, which when he has played this season has served for the right side.
French goalkeeper Luca Zidane, who came to the team on the last day of the transfer market, will enter the call for the trip to Tenerife although his presence in eleven seems difficult, especially due to his inactivity in the preseason and because in the first three league games the starter was the youth squad Miguel Ángel Morro, substitute on the last day with Málaga.
The other sensitive loss resides in the left side with the absence of Fran García, who has played every minute so far. His replacement will be Iván Martos, the only pure replacement for that demarcation.
The question, which will be resolved at the last moment before the call, is the presence of midfielder Mario Suárez, who is dragging some discomfort in one knee that already made him miss the last game.
