Drulic eyes Zaragoza start

Real Zaragoza's Goran Drulic is eager for first-team action after recovering from knee surgery.

Fit at last
The €12.8m signing from FK Crvena Zvezda joined the club last July but succumbed to an injury just a month later and had to undergo a knee-ligament operation. Drulic had been out of action for five months before completing a training session at the La Romareda stadium on Thursday. "I feel very good and I hope I will be given the chance to play my first match in two weeks time," he said.

Ligament injury
The 24-year-old was taken to hospital after tearing a ligament in training in August. Zaragoza currently lie in 14th place in the Primera División and are at home to RCD Espanyol in their next league match on Sunday.
