This Tuesday the Mexican striker Jesús rejoined training with Sevilla “Tecatito” Corona, who was six months out of physical activity after suffering a fracture of the fibula and rupture of the ligaments of the left anklean injury that required surgical intervention and that has evolved favorably.
The preparatory session for his return was open to the public and was directed by his DT, the Argentine Jorge Sampaoli. The extreme right was seen to be very participatory in the group dynamics in the Sevilla sports city.
It is worth mentioning that “Tecatito” He was received with great affection by his colleagues, who even subjected him to the classic “corridor” to welcome you back to the group.
Corona, who turned 30 last January, thus enters his last phase of rehabilitation after he underwent surgery on the previous August 18 in a Seville clinic for the serious injury he suffered in training that same day at the Ramón Sánchez- Pizjuán and that forced the Mexican international to leave the stadium by ambulance.
In the operation, the surgeon placed “a plate with screws on the fibula”, in addition to applying “a suture to both the external and internal ligaments” of the damaged ankle, according to what Sevilla reported at the time, which pointed out that the injury came “in a set of the game without any hit” and that, initially, this type of injury required a recovery of between four and five months.
Due to this period, even the Mexican team valued the possibility of incorporating the winger for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, and more so when he was seen on some occasion doing exercises on the grass of the sports city, although Tecatito had to go through the operating room again last December to undergo an arthroscopy in the affected area, something that, according to what was indicated at the time, was part of his rehabilitation plan.
The Mexican winger arrived at Sevilla in January 2022 from the Portowith Julen Lopetegui on the bench for the Sevillian team and as its greatest supporter, having already led it in his time at the helm of the Portuguese team.

In this campaign, the Mexican started in Pamplona against Osasuna on the opening day of this championship and was injured the day before the team played the second game of the tournament at home, against Valladolid.
The presence of Tecatito along with his teammates comes in the last session before traveling, early on Wednesday, to the Dutch city of Eindhoven, where the team will play against PSV in the second leg of the tie prior to the round of 16 of the Europa League, which they arrive with a favorable 3-0 lead achieved last week in the first leg; However, it is likely that Corona will not be able to participate, although his return to the courts is expected in the coming weeks, depending on the opinion of the DT.
The team will train again on Wednesday, but it will be on the pitch of the Philips Stadion, a session scheduled after Jorge Sampaoli and one of his players appeared before the press at the match scene facilities, Sevilla reported on Tuesday.
