Athletic Club Women are back to training with a complete group ahead of this Sunday’s Primera Iberdrola clash with RCD Espanyol.
Since their draw in Badajoz on January 23, the Lionesses have missed a home match against FC Barcelona and an away fixture with Real Betis due to a positive case among their ranks
After some players spent a period of time in quarantine as ‘close contacts’, head-coach Iraia Iturregi can now call upon the vast majority of her squad, with the exception of defender Ainhoa Moraza* who, whilst in good health, remains in self-isolation after testing positive for COVID-19 on January 24.
The squad is not only preparing for Sunday’ game with Espanyol, but also for a clash with Madrid CFF the following Wednesday.
*The individual concerned has given Athletic Club express permission to communicate her identity.
