Munain ‘very happy’ following return

Athletic Bilbao winger Iker Muniain has returned to full first-team training after recovering from a torn knee ligament.

The 25-year-old sustained the injury in a Europa League clash with Zorya in October but has returned to fitness ahead of schedule for the run-in to the current campaign.

“I’m happy to be able to help the team for our remaining games,” Munain is cited as saying by El Desmarque.

“I’m delighted to have overcome this stage of injury and to be in a good state of fitness again.”

Two years ago, Munain missed six months of action following a torn cruciate knee ligament sustained against Sevilla.
