Real Madrid youngster Jese Rodriguez is eyeing a comeback to the first team by November. The striker returned to the training ground a few days ago, but his recovery is going slowly.
Jese has been sidelined since last March, when he suffered an anterior cruciate ligament tear in his right knee during Los Blancos victory over Schalke 04 in the Champions League.
He was operated in Germany by Dr Ulrich Boenisch to repair the ligament, but a few days later he suffered a post-operation infection that has caused him a lot of trouble.
Jese has been working hard to recover for the last six months and he recently posted a picture on Twitter, announcing he’s back to doing exercises with a football.
The 21-year-old also explained on Twitter that he’s been doing speed tests with great results: “Tough training session today with plyometrics and field action, reaching 32 km/h! Happy!,” he published.
Despite recent reports that a recent antibiotics treatment had been negative for his recovery process, the player is feeling better every day. Spanish newspaper Marca has claimed he will be back in contention next November.
