Martins to feature for Levante

Levante are reportedly eager to return Obafemi Martins to full match fitness as soon as possible and will play him this midweek.

The Nigerian forward has missed around two weeks of training sessions with the club after sorting out a tax issue in his homeland over the Christmas period.

Whilst he was given a personalised training regime to follow, club officials have identified that he has fallen below full match fitness.

Subsequently, the striker is believed likely to start Wednesday evening’s Copa del Rey clash with Zaragoza.

Generally the competition has seen Coach Juan Ignacio Martinez rest his key players, in preference for League and Europa League performance.

Los Granotes are chasing the Last 16 tie, having fallen to a 1-0 defeat in front of their own fans in the first leg back in December.
