Boca breathed relief during the return to practice with the presence of his star reinforcement, Marcos Rojo, who had withdrawn from training on Tuesday with a muscle discomfort and worked alongside his teammates on Wednesday on what was his second day at the club.
The concern around the former Estudiantes de La Plata and Manchester United -among other clubs- was due to the fact that the defender came from a long inactivity (a game played in the last 14 months) and training on his own. Rojo had been presented on Tuesday at noon in the Bombonera by the president of the club, Jorge Ameal, and In his first practice he felt a pain that did not allow him to complete the works. Although Boca did not share any official medical report, close friends to the player indicated that he finished the physical work with a “slight discomfort” in the right calf, but that he did not feel any puncture.
Consequently, in the run-up to practice on Wednesday afternoon, the player underwent medical tests to see if he was fit to work with the group. For the coaching staff headed by coach Miguel Russo, Rojo’s annoyance was normal because the left-hander had not trained on a playing field for two months. Finally, To end the suspicions, the club posted on their social networks an image of the defender training at Casa Amarilla.
The one who did work in a different way was the archer Esteban Andrada, who had also finished Tuesday practice with mild discomfort, so he limited himself to kinesiology tasks during the day to avoid taking risks. For its part, Agustin Almendra he retired from the field with what could be a tear.
Meanwhile, the bad news of the week is still the deteriorating relationship between the Soccer Council, the coach and the squad. The last contribution to the chaos was the leak of an audio from the Colombian Jorge Bermudez -member of the Council- shooting at Carlos Tevez After the referent xeneize made it transcend the last weekend that he had seriously thought about retiring due to the situation at the club.
The origin of the malaise would be the already resolved conflict with Pol Fernández, one of the many mistreatments that the leadership has been having with the players for contractual reasons. It is worth remembering that at the time, Tevez interceded for the steering wheel but did not have the expected response. So things, with good on the field of play and not so good on the desks, the squad was concentrated in the face of next Saturday’s friendly against Talleres.
The pass market
One of those who could leave the campus in the next few hours is the youth Gaston avila: the defender emerged in Rosario Central He would return on loan to his home club, which still owns 40 percent of his tab. Only the approval of the Football Council is missing, as Russo gave the go-ahead for the operation.
In addition, among those who can be loaned or transferred in this pass market are the steering wheel Gonzalo Maroni (your destination could be Racing) and Agustin Obando, who could be part of the operation with Talleres de Córdoba so that the lateral reaches Boca Nahuel Tenaglia. There would also be interest in Nicolas Orsiniby Lanús.
As for the attacker Cristian Pavón, for the moment he is not going to operate for the fibrosis (bone) that he suffers in the ankles as it feels in good condition. In that sense, there was consensus on the matter between the player, the club’s Football Council and DT Russo, who stressed that the Cordoba player is one of those who works the most in physical tasks in the current preseason.
