Medical: Milito eyes February return

Madrid sports tabloid As claims that Barcelona central defender and Argentinian international Gabriel Milito (28) could have been given the green light by the medical staff when Barcelona will face Olympique Lyon in the 1/8 finals of the Champions League in February.

The Argentinian is carefully recovering from his knee injury with long training sessions. Although he still has some pain, Milito is keeping up with the schedule and he's very motivated to join his team-mates in a few weeks time.

Milito's progress is closely followed by Barcelona doctor Ramon Cugat and physical coach Lorenzo Buenaventura, with Barcelona manager Josep Guardiola being daily informed about the evolution of the defender's injury.

Milito suffered a knee injury on 29 April 2008 during the second game of the Champions League semi-finals against Manchester United last season. The predicted recovery time was then being estimated between six and nine months.
