We've followed all the steps that Barcelona have instructed. The injury is improving well in the way we had predicted.
He still has to be careful about possible muscular injuries as he's spent a long time without playing.
He (Ayala) is ready ... now he has to wait for his coach to decide when he can play. Heinze is coming along very well, he will probably start training in the middle of next week and we hope he will be playing in another three weeks.
However, it doesn't mean he will play football after that period. When that moment arrives, Gabriel will be tested to see if he is ready to play football or not.
The injury has healed very well but we cannot yet put a date on his return to action because that would put too much psychological pressure on him.
