THE BALL – Pedro Gonçalves stretched the rope (Sporting)

Map of the game for the commitment of the 24th day of the League in Barreiros. Two days after A BOLA claimed that Pedro Gonçalves suffered from a left thigh injury, confirmed by the club the next day to justify his absence from training, Rúben Amorim announced that the attacking midfielder would not be an option for the duel this afternoon (6 p.m.) with Marítimo, not excluding that the embezzlement extends to other meetings.

“Pedro Gonçalves is offside and it seems to me that he will be absent for a few matches”, began by saying the coach of the lions, in a press conference.

Fundamental piece in the eleven of the lions – he is the top scorer of the team, with 14 goals (and seven assists) in 31 matches -, Pedro Gonçalves will have played the last leonine matches far from an adequate physical condition, because of the desire to help the team face obstacles, now accusing muscular problems. This situation leaves the number 28 under the watchful eye of the medical service, who will follow the development of the situation, in order to understand how long the 23-year-old will be away from the squad.

Rúben Amorim yesterday put on the table the possibility that the attacking midfielder will not only miss the team in this meeting with Marítimo, in Barreiros, but also in the games that follow.
