Paolo Guerrero’s Edema in His Thigh Generates Concern


The Peruvian striker experienced discomfort in his left thigh and was unable to complete the practices of Flamengo club this Monday.

Peruvian soccer is in their most important moment of the last 35 years (the last time Peru went to a World Cup), and Paolo is surely one of the most important figures in the team.

The doctor of the carioca club revealed that Guerrero has an edema in the affected area. This was certified by tests taken after the practice routine of Flamengo this Monday. His condition causes concern in the Peruvian team facing the repechage against New Zealand.

The ‘Predator’ – who is being treated for his injury in the medical department of the club was told not to play against Sao Paulo – participated in the practice box with Reinaldo Rueda, but could not complete the drills due to the pain felt in his left thigh. “Today he only did transition work, he was doing physiotherapy,” he said.

“The Peruvian striker was participating in a training with his teammates just normally when he felt pain again in his left thigh,” Brazilian midfielder Globo Esporte reported.

It is worth remembering that the striker is a fundamental part of the Peruvian team, which is close to facing the playoff against New Zealand. He was the one to score the goal against Colombia.

What do you think about this? Do you think Paolo will get better? How important is he for the coming matches?
