Augusto Fernández enjoyed football again after recovering from the serious knee injury that has kept him away from the game for ten long months. In statements for the club’s web, he said to be very happy with his return to the pitch. "I lived it as if I was making my debut again, especially in the pre-match. Now, it’s time to have fun again. I had many mixed feelings, and from the opening whistle I felt I was where I like to be, the truth is that I felt well, I’m taking it easy, picking up the pace and the important thing is that the knee is doing well, it’s responding well and we’re going to go pick up our game," he noted.
He also underlined the support from all of his teammates that he has felt throughout these months that has made his recovery easier. "I felt their support at all times, and of everyone in general, but they are the ones who are with me day after day and have been fundamental these past months, which have been many. Today, I am thankful to all of them because I have felt that my teammates are also glad to see me on the field and it shows that this is a great family," he concluded.
