Sergio Pelegrín has seen the back of his injuries. The Elche CF player, who underwent an operation three months ago, has completely recovered from the muscle problems in his adductors and will be available to play against Granada CF. "I really want to play. Now it is all behind me. It has been a difficult few years for me but luckily the ordeal is over", he said in reference to the start of his issues.
Having not played a single minute last season, Pelegrín now has an opportunity to make his Liga BBVA debut. This is great news for the team's coach, Fran Escribá, who after his victories over RC Celta, RCD Espanyol and Real Betis Balompié now has a key player back. Pelegrín was not only one of the side's defensive stalwarts in the Liga Adelante, he was also an asset going forward.
