Good news for the Gallardo Doll

Marcelo Gallardo received some encouraging news: River central defender Héctor David Martínez suffered a sprain of the lateral ligament in his left knee in the match against Newell’s and will be resting for the next few weeks to return to the team at the end of March. Beyond missing a few games, the fear when he walked off the field is that he might have suffered a more serious injury.

The defender suffered a heavy blow 20 minutes into the first half of the match played on Sunday night in Rosario, in a cross with Uruguayan side Armando Méndez, and had to leave the field of play replaced by his teammate Jonatan Maidana.

River medical sources confirmed to the Télam agency that the knee injury suffered by the defender of the Paraguayan team is not serious, after the studies that were carried out this Monday at the Rossi clinic in Buenos Aires. The defender’s recovery will begin this Tuesday when he returns to training at the River Camp and, after two or three weeks of rehabilitation, he will start with ball work, to be discharged – the doctors estimate – in the last week of March .

In this way, Martínez, who will miss the classic against Boca and the last date of the South American Qualifiers, may be available for the start of the group stage of the Copa Libertadores, scheduled for April.

Meanwhile, the defender Leandro González Pirez, who in Rosario replaced Paulo Díaz, will continue in the starting team in place of Martínez to form a pair with the Chilean, who this week will join the work after the flu that disaffected him from the game before Newell’s.
