Valencia are already thinking of their match against Real Madrid next Sunday, but Celades can't help but look sideways at the infirmary. When it looked like it was starting to recover troops, Cheryshev and Kondogbia They are ready to play, an old acquaintance this season suffered a muscle injury again: Kevin Gameiro.
The Frenchman has been a season marked by muscle injuries since the latter, which is a micro-break in the twin and will prevent him from playing for the remainder of the year, is the third. That made the striker barely find continuity in what we've been in the season since he hardly played 849 minutes from the 80's when the team played, or whatever, 42% of the time. A whole new situation for the player since then, except when the ligaments broke in 2014, throughout his career he has never lost so many games at the start of a competition for up to three different injuries and has been playing since 2005.
And the sad thing for fans is that when Gameiro was able to find minutes, his performance was more than good.So much so that he has put on the table on more than one occasion the debate over whether the proprietor should be him or Maxi Gomez. The hint resumed in front of Levante just over a week ago, which he hasn't done since last October. His big game, with two goals, led to not few who asked for his place in the eleven against Ajax, and Celades lined him up, but because he had no choice due to Maxi's injury.
The truth is that both Gameiro, Gomez and of course Rodrigo have a more than remarkable start to the season. Celades made it clear, seeing what was seen in the matches, that the & # 39; untouchable & # 39; In the attack zone is Rodrigo Moreno, who leaves a dispute over the other place between French and Uruguayan. And today, although Maxi accumulates best numbers with 6 goals and 2 assists, Kevin with 457 minutes less and three injuries sustained, has 4 goals and 2 goal passes, the same as his partner.
