The player of the Athletic Club Unai Winner could miss the Spain Supercup which will be played next week in Saudi Arabia due to the physical discomfort he has suffered in this Sunday’s league game against Deportivo Alavés in Mendizorroza.
They had not reached the two minutes of meeting when the Biscayan midfielder stretched out on the grass without being able to continue playing due to what seemed like muscle problems.
If the muscle injury is confirmed, in principle, Rekalde’s central midfielder, a permanent starter in the Asturian coach’s line-ups, it should be off for several weeks.
Therefore, it is a doubt not only for the Super Cup, which will be measured on Thursday at Atlético de Madrid in Riyadh (8:00 p.m.), but also for the final on Sunday, in the event that Athletic arrives, for the Copa del Rey match the following week, on January 19 or 20, against Barcelona in San Mamés, and for the league date on Sunday 23 against Rayo in Vallecas (18:30).
Winner is not the only doubt for the Super Cup in Athletic, which travels this Tuesday, since it is still not clear that they can be available for it Unai Núñez, Ander Capa, Asier Villalibre and Yuri Berchiche.
