Coentrao resumes Real Madrid training

The Portugal international has spent the past four weeks on the sidelines due to physical problems, but is on the verge of making his comeback.
Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho has been handed a timely boost ahead of Sunday's trip to Levante, after Fabio Coentrao made a return to training.

The defender picked up a groin injury while away on international duty with Portugal last month, and has been out of action ever since. The 24-year-old is now one step closer to making his comeback, though, as he has resumed regular training action, putting an end to a four-week spell on the sidelines.

Coentrao's imminent return to full match fitness will be a big boost for Mourinho, with fellow left back Marcelo still unavailable due to injury and Sergio Ramos admitting Thursday that he has been playing through a muscle injury with the club in a bit of a defensive crisis.
