Granero back in light training after op

Real Sociedad fans have been cheered by the news that Esteban Granero has returned to light training.

The on loan midfielder has been out since September after suffering a cruciate ligament tear, and on the eve of the New Year has finally started running again.

The 26-year-old was pictured on the training ground this morning with physios lightly jogging for the first time since his operation.

Granero is expected to be back playing by April.
