Valencia’s Del Horno targets January return

The summer signing from Chelsea, said: “Hopefully by the end of January I can return to train with the team, to begin little by little with everyone. I hope the coach can give me some confidence by playing me in consecutive games, four at the most and then physically I will be ready.

“My recovery is going well, I am in a phase that little by little everything is going better and with all the things that I am doing every time I am a little better. I am not taking any backward steps.”
