The situation of Lo Celso26, originated on Sunday when he had to leave the field with clear signs of pain in the match that Villarreal lost 1-0 with Athletic Bilbao by The league of Spain.
The Argentine underwent the first medical examinations, which indicated that he suffers from a tear, although it would have been a grade one. However, from the club Spain They will carry out new studies to determine how complex the injury is and from the coaching staff of the national team they continue to expect the state of the player who is a fixed piece in the team.
The presence of Lo Celso in the first match of the Argentine national team on the world Cupon Tuesday, November 22 against Saudi Arabiahad already been almost ruled out after the first medical details, but, if it were confirmed that it was more serious or that he even had to undergo surgery, he would definitely be left out of the World Cup event.
For now, from Villarreal They reported that the footballer from Rosario will undergo new tests and evaluate possible treatments, so they imagine that between Tuesday and Wednesday they could provide an official medical report.
This means a headache for Scalonicoach of the national team, who usually places Lo Celso headline next to Leandro Paredes Y Rodrigo DePaul in midfield.
Although we will have to wait for the results of the studies, the outlook is not very encouraging and the national coach will have to rethink how to make up for the possible absence of the player from Villarreal and who could sneak into the starting team would be Alexis MacAllisterwho itches on point, and Alejandro “Papu” Gomez.
In addition, other alternatives to be part of the definitive list could be Enzo Fernández, Exequiel Palacios, Guido Rodríguez, Thiago Almada and Nicolás Domínguezwith different characteristics.
