Osasuna’s Argentine striker Chimy Ávila has returned to an official call-up 421 days after suffering the first of two ligament injuries that have kept him off the pitch for 13 months and 23 days.
The one from Rosario will travel to Huesca to be on the bench in front of his former team after Jagoba Arrasate has rewarded his great effort these months with his call after being seriously injured for the second time last September 9 during a session in Tajonar.
Everything suggests that the brave player will not have minutes until next Thursday in the match that faces Osasuna and Eibar in a friendly way in Mondragón.
The news has been greeted with great enthusiasm by the Reds fans. The excellent season that the South American curdled last year until the moment of his injury with nine goals delighted a fan who will be able to enjoy their idol in the last days of LaLiga Santander to achieve the goal of permanence.
The club has announced through an exciting video shot in the Plaza de Toros de Pamplona the return of number 9 rojillo. The footballer jumps into the Pamplona arena imitating the brave animal before kicking a ball with his left leg.
Osasuna coach Jagoba Arrasate has welcomed the return of Argentine striker Chimy Ávila to a call-up, after 421 days inactive due to two ligament tears, and has asked him for patience to reach his best level.
“This is great news. Now we have to wait for its best version, which I understand will come with the training sessions and minutes of competition ”, commented Arrasate at a press conference.
In turn, the Berriatua coach has been “cautious” about his return, and has considered that next Thursday’s friendly match against Eibar “will be good for him.”
“He is not yet in his best version, as is normal. Charging him with responsibility is not good or fair, it will not be the savior of anything and he knows that from a call he can also help. He wants to help us with goals, but everything will come in due time ”, He has said at a press conference about the Argentine’s reappearance.
