Mallorca's Juan Arango says he bears no grudge against Sevilla's Javi Navarro.Mallorca's Juan Arango will resume full training at the end of the month, and says he bears no grudge against Sevilla defender Javi Navarro.
The Venezuelan midfielder suffered a fractured cheekbone and was rushed to hospital after being on the receiving end of an elbow from Navarro in Mallorca's 1-0 defeat to Sevilla last month.
The player has now been given a clean bill of health and has resumed light training, and should join up with his team-mates in around three weeks.
It means he is likely to feature again before the end of the Spanish season as Mallorca desperately battle to avoid relegation.
Navarro received a five-match ban from the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) for his actions, but Arango insists he has now forgiven the Sevilla stopper.
"I don't have any bad feeling towards Javi Navarro," he stated.
"What happened is over now and I only want to be able to play football again as soon as possible.
"Obviously this is something that I am going to remember all my life but I want it to be as an anecdote.
"I could try to take revenge against Navarro but I have never done something like that and I will never do.
"I hope this ends as soon as possible and that Javi Navarro has luck in everything else he does."
