Early recovery of Oyarzabal would be a big help for Real Sociedad

The Real Sociedad winger appeared as doubt when injured against Cadiz.

Manchester United


He emerged as doubt this week when he was ruled out last week's 4-1 win over



La Liga


Sociedad confirmed Hamstring's problem and he was evaluated while no time has been set for his return.

"Mikel Oyarzabal has presented with tendinopathy in the proximal hamstring tendons of the right thigh,"

the statement from Sociedad read.

"He has begun physical therapy treatment. A return to action will depend on the evolution of his symptoms."

Marta reported on Friday that Oyarzabal's injury had responded excellent to the treatment, and he would undergo a fitness test on Saturday to decide on his trip to Getafe.

La Real released their list of players on Saturday night and Oyarzabal is among the 23-man traveling party.

Sociedad coach

Imanol Alguacil

is in trouble as his side are sixth in La Liga and in danger of falling out of the top four.

The temptation must be to start Oyarzabal, but Alguacil will know that facing United in the last 32 of the Europa League on Thursday is a more significant occasion. The extra days' rest would be a massive benefit to a player who has already scored 12 goals this term.
