Atletico Madrid shot-stopper David de Gea hopeful of recovering from injury in time to face Rosenborg in Europa League.
Atletico Madrid goalkeeper David de Gea is confident of making a recovery from injury in time to face Rosenborg in Thursday’s Europa League encounter.
The 19-year-old picked up a thigh knock during Monday’s training session, forcing him to retire, and today he trained in the gym separate from the rest of the squad as he attempts to prove his fitness in time to face the Norwegian champions, in what is a must-win match for Atleti.
Speaking of his hope that the slight strain can be shaken off in time to compete in the match at the Vicente Calderon, he told journalists yesterday: “I did tests at the clinic and there is a little problem. It is only an overload of the muscle, and I hope to start against Rosenborg.
