Injury woes for Girona: Miguel Gutierrez's battle to return to action

Miguel Gutierrez spared no effort in his bid to feature in Girona FC's last La Liga clash against Getafe.

However, the defenders calf injury proved too much to handle, prompting Michel to adjust the team lineup, giving Pablo Torre the nod to replace the Madrid native in the La Liga clash that Girona lost 1-0 at Getafe last Saturday.

After a few well-deserved days off, the Girona squad have already resumed training sessions to gear up for their next home fixture against Manuel Pellegrini's Real Betis on Sunday at Estadi Montilivi, according to a report by Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo..

Girona coach Michel coach admitted that Gutierrez had played against Osasuna in the previous La Liga match two weeks ago while battling through pain and with an injection. As of now, Gutierrez is striving to be fit for the weekend when the league resumes against Betis.

The Real Madrid academy graduate is nursing a tough calf injury that hampers his movement, and initial assessments suggest that the left-back could return in about ten days if the discomfort subsides and his recovery progresses as expected.

Gutierrez is a key player for Michel, and his performances have relegated Daley Blind to a backup option for the left flank in case of emergencies. If he misses the showdown against Betis, he is likely to return in the subsequent fixture, where Girona will face Atletico Madrid at the Metropolitano.
