Brentford winger Sergi Canos has shared footage of what appeared to be a gruelling work out as he continues his recovery from a serious knee injury.
The Spaniard has not been available for selection since the start of October when he suffered the injury during training after the Bees’ 1-0 loss to Nottingham Forest.
But he now appears to have taken his recovery to the next level, taking on what he has called ‘the machine of death’, writing in Spanish alongside the clip on his Instagram story.
QUIZ: Can you name the last 11 Brentford men to wear the no. 9 shirt?
He set the location of the clip as Isokinetic, a sports rehabilitation centre in London, so you cannot doubt that he is doing everything possible to get back to full fitness.
Prior to the knock, Canos was an ever present in the Bees’ starting XI, notching three assists in 11 matches before suffering the knock.
However, Thomas Frank and his side have not exactly suffered without him. In his absence, summer-signing Bryan Mbeumo has stepped up impressively, scoring 11 goals and assisting five more in 26 games.
I mean it is easy to tell from this video just how much strain Canos is putting on himself during this workout.
But, whilst it is no doubt painful for him now, the fans should be encouraged that he is now at a stage to be putting such pressure on the knee.
Whilst Mbeumo has been excellent for the Bees, they could certainly do with some increased competition in the wide areas ahead of the season run in.
