Félix Garreta wakes up from a coma and recognizes his relatives

The player Félix Martí Garreta, who was in an induced coma after suffering a domestic accident, “has been awake and has recognized his relatives” this Tuesday, as confirmed by EFE from sources close to the SD Amorebieta footballer, on loan from the Real Betis.

Félix was in an induced coma in a hospital as a result of a head injury that occurred after suffering a domestic accident that forced his hospitalization. As reported by the Basque club in a first statement last Thursday, the Catalan player was admitted with a reserved prognosis and pending progress.

Although the fact that he has already woken up and recognized his relatives is "a good step" in the player's recovery, the sources consulted by EFE consider that "we must see how he evolves and be cautious for the moment." “Little by little,” they summarize the situation.

The green-and-white centre-back, who also usually plays as a left-back, arrived at the Betis youth academy in the 2020-2021 season from Barcelona's Damm and was promoted until he debuted last season with the first team, playing the full match against Athletic Club in Benito Villamarín, from matchday 15 of LaLiga EA Sports.

In addition, he also played four minutes in the 2022/2023 Copa del Rey third round match against CD Ibiza. The Barcelona defender was a regular in the Betis Deportivo eleven and participated with the Spanish under-19 team, along with Dani Pérez and Assane Diao, in the European Championship of this category, until last summer when he opted to go on loan to Amorebieta.

In the Biscayan team he is the undisputed starter, having made 33 games (31 in the League in the Second Division) with four goals scored and one assist, and due to his good performance at the Amorebieta the idea of ​​the Betic club is to hold the preseason this summer at orders from his coach, the Chilean Manuel Pellegrini.
