Saúl: Objective Moscow

This Tuesday's match against Salzburg will be the fourth consecutive game to be missed.
Saúl Ñíguez
with the Atlético de Madrid. The youth squad was no longer in front of Celta, Bayern and Betis. And he did not enter the call for the clash against the Austrians.

It all started a couple of weeks ago, with his loss in training. Individualized work as a precaution, announced the club, which since then has not officially reported the repeated absences in the sessions with the group. A muscle overload was the reason. And keep working on the sidelines.

Because the days go by and Saúl continues without exercising under Simeone's orders. The discomfort does not disappear, which prevents the Elche from training with his companions. But his condition is improving. The return is closer. In fact, at Atlético they already have a date for their return: next week, in the Champions League match against Lokomotiv in Moscow.

Saúl is not ruled out to visit Osasuna in El Sadar on Saturday, but it is understood that in a week, he should be ready to travel to Russia. You don't want to risk the least and it is hoped that when it reappears, there will be no trace of that small muscular ailment that does not allow you to work normally and also to avoid a relapse that would lead to a more serious injury and a period of sickness greater than the current one. But if the evolution continues being positive as until now, the midfielder has many options to reappear in Moscow.

The break could be good for a Saúl for whom there was concern at Atlético in view of the level offered in recent months. Being important on the field of play, and fixed for Simeone, his performance was not being the one assumed for a player of his quality. Now, with this reboot, Saul hopes to come back stronger.
