‘Relative calmness for Ruben’

Real Betis President Miguel Guillen says that there is a ‘relative calmness’ at the club, despite losing Ruben Castro for six weeks.

The striker has been confirmed this week as set to undergo surgery on a chronic hamstring injury, which was picked up during continued treatment on the player’s struggles with sciatica.

The latter issue has largely disrupted the Castro’s preseason and restricted him to just two appearances in all competitions for Betis.

And now this week’s surgical procedure for the hamstring issue will keep the 32-year-old out for a period of six weeks.

“Fortunately, the doctors have identified a second injury for Ruben, which had been overlooked for the first, and it has been rectified through the treatment that the player will undergo,” Guillen commented to reporters today.

“In a way, there is a relative calmness that this second injury has been detected and that a solution for it has been given.”
