In the midst of the postponement of the upcoming Kolkata Derby the East Bengal fans can have a big smile on their face as their Captain and Leader at the back Borja Gomez Perez has finally returned to full training with the first team today.
Borja Gomez suffered a knee injury against Mohammedan Sporting in the Calcutta Football League in September and had been nursing his injury ever since. He flew back to Spain for his medical rehabilitation and came back to Kolkata in the first week of December.
With the postponement of the Derby, the next match is due for quite some time for Alejandro’s men who will face Churchill Brothers on 4th January. With more than 2 weeks time, it will be essential for Borja Gomez to return to full fitness for the remainder of the I-League campaign.
