Atlético accumulates 18 injuries this season, 14 muscular

first_imgSince last season a new terror has been installed in Atlético. Two words. “Muscle injury”. Infinite Terror In the halls of the sports city and the Wanda Metropolitano, as a whisper that better not to say too loud. Just in case. 45 muscle injuries ravaged the squad last season, 2018-19. This, from the preseason in San Rafael to which the team returned as a mantra to avoid them, had been controlled. Workloads were distributed.Until December there had been nine, 17 less than the previous year, in the same period (there were 25 in total). But One date changed everything. December 8th, the one in which in the 2018-19 season, Lucas suffered a knee sprain, this Vitolo suffered a grade I lesion in the adductor musculature of the left thigh. Since then, at Atlético there have been eight more medical parts. Simeone faces the derby with the loss of six players (Koke ​​and Trippier among them, the two could be discharged in the next few days but still do not have it; Lemar is not discharged but, except for a gastroenteritis on Tuesday, he is training well ) and only 16 fit, two of them, goalkeepers. Because after that Vitolo injury, Lodi, Koke, Lemar, Giménez, Koke, Trippier, Arias and João Félix have been falling in this order. The alarms have been turned on again. 18 injuries already. And, except for the knee brace that Morata suffered, João Felix’s ankle, Diego Costa’s cervical disc herniation and Lodi’s bone contusion, all muscular. The whisper is already a scream again. Atletico is again as always in all the last Janros. A frame. And his infirmary fills.
