Ghana and Athletic Bilbao striker, Inaki Williams could make a quick return this weekend as he appears to have recovered from an ankle injury and will be eligible to play against Espanyol.

Williams was forced off early in the second half of Bilbao’s matchday three encounter against Cadiz after scoring his opening goal of the season following ankle discomfort.

However, ahead of the game, Inigo Lekue, who is Williams' teammate has hinted that the player who holds the record for the most consecutive games played in the Spanish top flight is likely to keep that run going.

“He is trying to get there, but honestly, speaking yesterday -for Wednesday- with him, he told me that the least of his concerns is the record,” said Lekue at the pre-match conference.

“It’s a very nice brand, it’s impressive what he’s achieving and what he’s achieved, but the first thing is that he’s fine, he can play and contribute everything he can to the team. If this is not the case, he is not going to force simply to enlarge the record

Williams who recently completed his nationality switch to Ghana ahead of the 2022 World Cup.

The talented forward has played 236 consecutive matches without being injured or suspended.
