Llorente back to full training

Fernando Llorente returned to full training at Athletic Bilbao today after the contract issue and a brief injury lay-off.

Llorente missed a call-up to Marcelo Bielsa’s squad for Real Valladolid at the weekend suffering with a hamstring injury, but he has recovered and played a full part in training on Wednesday.

The return to full training also represents a thawing in the relationship with the club, on from this summer’s fall-out over his refusal to sign an extension to his current deal at San Mames.

Previous weeks had seen Llorente’s involvement with the first team limited to occasional training sessions and complete exclusion from matchday squads.
