New Sevilla head coach, Jose Luis Mendilibar, has confirmed that Bryan Gil’s injury is not serious and that the winger is expected to return to training in a matter of days.
Gil earned a deserved recall to the Spain squad for their Euro 2024 qualifiers against Norway and Scotland after impressing since his loan switch to Sevilla in January.
Unfortunately for the 22-year-old, he had to withdraw from the squad without playing a part in either match, with news emerging last Wednesday that the youngster had returned to Seville after feeling some discomfort in training.
The print edition of AS (24/03/23 – as relayed by Sport Witness) explained a couple of days ago that Gil made the decision to return to his club as a precaution as he did not want to risk aggravating the problem.
Mendilibar, who replaced Jorge Sampaoli at Seville last week, has now confirmed that the results of the winger’s scan are positive.
He told Mucho Deporte about the on-loan Tottenham man: “Today (Sunday) he had a test.
“It’s nothing serious and I think he could be there in the middle of the week to start training.”

This is good news for Gil as the last thing he would have wanted is to be sidelined for a few weeks after a new manager has arrived.
Although Mendilibar knows the 22-year-old from his time at Eibar, the winger would want to make a good impression on the training pitch in order to ensure he keeps his place in Sevilla’s starting eleven.
