Good news on Wednesday as right-back Laure got the medical discharge but, despite the suspension of Manuel Pablo, it doesn’t mean that he’ll be picked for the crucial match against Malaga as he has been out for five months.

Right-back defender Laureano Sanabria ´Laure´ got the medical discharge on Wednesday after been out for five months due to a groin injury known as pubalgy. It was a strange case that began as a silly problem after taking a nap before the visit to RCD Espanyol. For this reason he has missed the 19 matches played in 2013.

The former Fabril defender tried to return in February as the player joined the trainings with the group, but didn’t feel fine and the doctors decided to sideline him, as it happened to Bruno Gama on last season it was decided that the best was to follow a treatment based in physiotherapy instead of a surgery.

One round in la liga later the Madrilenian is available to play, just when coach Fernando Vázquez is looking for a solution as Manuel Pablo is suspended for the next game in liga. However it doesn’t mean that he will play in the visit to Malaga CF, actually it doesn’t even mean that he will be picked for the clash, because the player is lacking match fitness.

Laure himself admitted it on Monday as he offered a press conference, “I’m only ready to play for 50 or 60 minutes; there are other partners with more pace, so I would understand to not be part of the list for the game. I want to thank the doctors and the physiotherapists, Sergio, Adan, Adolfo, Pablo… for their dedication.”

The Madrilenian defender confessed that he suffered a lot within the past five months, “This injury has been a nightmare; I hope nobody has to pass through this, it was long and hard and I spent a bad time. It was an atypical case; if the pubalgy turns to be a normal case then I would have been playing since some time ago. Now it would be great to be back in the last game with the salvation inside the pocket.”

“I lived with impotence seeing that things weren’t working out for the team, but right now we have plenty of options; we are strong and the coach is bringing a positive energy that has been reflected in the results. The players are united at the changing room and are also feeling committed, and I’m proud of been part of this group.” He finalized.
