As officially confirmed by a club statement, Alex Collado, loaned to Elche, has suffered an adductor injury and could be out for approximately 3 months.

The 23-year-old winger suffered the injury during a training session at Elche’s camp. Later, it turned out to be a serious setback as the youngster has a ruptured adductor in his right groin, which could very much hamper his remaining season.

More accurately, as the official club statement claims:

Moreover, according to Spanish journalist Javi Miguel, the youngster, similarly to his fellow Barcelona loanee, Nico González, will be out of availability for around 3 months. Thankfully, as things stand, it’s unlikely that he will need surgery, but anyways, there is a long way back to full fitness.

From Elche’s standpoint, it’s an even more sensible casualty as they are already knee-deep in an injury crisis. With Collado’s recent injury, Pablo Machín’s team now has 5 players sidelined due to physical problems, namely John Chetauya, Josan Fernández, Pol Lirola, and Nicolás Fernández alongside, of course, Alex Collado himself.

Elche has already been striking a bad patch anyway, and with all honesty, it’s not looking good for them. With just 4 points after 15 matches, they are at the very bottom of the table and looking at the advanced numbers, there is little hope that it will change, and they are surely marching towards relegation into the Segunda División.

Speaking about Collado, the La Masia graduate joined Elche on loan in the summer, after a half-year stint at Granada, also on loan. In the total of 9 games he participated in while wearing the Franjiverde colors, the midfielder managed to register one goal and one assist, while failing to become a regular starter amidst the chaos surrounding the club.

Before his injury, rumors circulated about Barcelona possibly recalling the youngster to loan him out again in January, but this long-term injury certainly crossed these plans. Anyways, hopefully, he will be back soon and enjoy a campaign as successful as possible in proceedings. Wish him a speedy recovery.
