Morante de la Puebla will reappear this Friday in Seville after testing himself on the field to test the state of his injured wrist, which forced him to cut the season short at the end of August as he had done before in the month of July. September 29 is the first of the two afternoons that the teacher from Puebla has booked at the San Miguel fair, in the Maestranza that witnessed the historical milestone of the tail on April 26, men of weak memory.
During all this time of absence, Morante has taken refuge in Portugal, where a team of specialists is treating the rupture of the scapholunate ligament that is giving him so many headaches. “This weekend has been proven [en la ganedería de Manuel Veiga], and on Sunday he tempted eight cows. Everything is going well, he runs seven kilometers a day, but I do not hide my concern because the discomfort persists. We’ll see. how far we have come,” his representative Pedro J. Marques tells the journalist.
Morante’s injury requires surgery, which would have forced him to permanently cut the season short. The solution has been to try to strengthen the depleted joint and make the effort to finish. “José Antonio is very encouraged to face this last stretch, excited and very mental,” adds Marques. The commitments of Úbeda on September 30, Valencia on October 8, Madrid on the 12th, Zaragoza on the 13th and 14th and the Seville festival on the 15th await the Sevillian.
