More than six months after a devastating injury to his right achilles tendon knocked him out of action, Ari Santos has been officially cleared to play by Club doctors.

The Brazilian injured himself on a freak play in the semi-finals of the Spanish Cup versus Inter Movistar in Logroño on March 15. Since that day Ari has been putting in a tremendous effort to get back as soon as possible.

He regularly did double and triple sessions of rehabilitation and physical therapy, even skipping his summer holiday to make sure he did not miss a beat and to minimise his time out. His determination has landed him on the list for tonight's match versus Palma.
