Celta Vigo handed Renato Tapia boost ahead of Atlético clash

La Liga outfit Celta Vigo have this week been afforded a timely boost on the personnel front.

That’s according to Mundo Deportivo, who have on Wednesday provided an insight into the latest developments behind the scenes in Vigo.

The talking point of the day at the Celestes’ training ground came in the form of the return of Renato Tapia.

Midfielder Tapia, for his part, was forced to sit out each of his side’s last four La Liga fixtures.

As much came owing to a thigh injury suffered during a meeting with Rayo Vallecano on the final day of March.

Amid the club’s ongoing push away from the Spanish top-flight relegation zone, all associated with Celta will in turn no doubt be delighted to hear of Tapia linking back up with his teammates at the Afouteza Sports City.

As per the aforementioned MD, the Peruvian trained at full intensity alongside the rest of Claudio Giráldez’s ranks on Wednesday morning.

Tapia, who is inching towards the close of his stint at Balaídos ahead of the expiration of his contract in the summer, is in turn expected to be at the disposal of boss Giráldez on Sunday afternoon, when Celta make the trip to the Spanish capital for a La Liga showdown with Atlético Madrid.
