With the loss of Darío Cvitanich, who suffered a torn adductor muscle in his right leg, Churry was one of Sebastián Beccacece’s first exchange options to play against Flamengo.
The defeat in Tucumán shook the internal that runs through Racing. Eliminated from the Professional Soccer League Cup, ordered to play the Complementation Zone for a place in the South American 2022, he has a silver bullet: Flamengo. But the Academia It seems wrapped in a spiral of bad news, as in its darkest times. While the fans prepare a march for this Sunday under the slogan “Milito is not leaving”, it was learned that Jonatan Cristaldo suffers from Covid-19 and will not be available for the matches with the Brazilians. The first leg will be this Tuesday in Avellaneda and the rematch, on December 1 in Rio de Janeiro.
The 31-year-old forward had sprained his right ankle against Unión in Santa Fe. He played undercover against Arsenal. That is why last Thursday he was on the bench in front of the people of Tucumán. With the dismissal of Darío Cvitanich, who suffered a tear in the adductor of his right leg, Cristaldo was one of the first options for change for Sebastián Beccacece.
However, the tests carried out this Friday revealed that the Churry is positive for coronavirus. As reported by the club through its official channels, it is an asymptomatic case and it is already isolated.
Cristaldo is not the only player who contracted coronavirus in Racing. Iván Pillud, Matías Zaracho – transferred to Atlético Mineiro-, Alexis Soto, Tiago Banega and Juan Cáceres had been infected. Also, the physical trainer, Martín Bressan, and the kinesiologist, Rosendo Regueiro.
Even so, Cristaldo was not going to play against Flamengo from the start. Beccacece plans to locate Lisandro López and Nicolás Reniero, who is working hard to recover from pubyalgia.
Meanwhile, there is another game that is played off the field and which all Racing is pending. It is about the one who has Diego Milito and Víctor Blanco faced. The manager, who did not speak publicly, sent word through his environment that he could resign in December. He has differences with Adrián Fernández, in charge of the Amateur Football Department, and Roberto Torres, in charge of security at the club. The president counterattacked with the same letter. He tells his relatives that he is tired, that if the fight with the technical secretary persists, he would be willing not to appear in the elections to be held on December 20.
Will the blood get to the river? Blanco was silent. His daughter Barbara, also secretary of the club, spoke on the subject. “My dad and Milito haven’t had a talk yet. I did not discuss the matter with him because we are very focused on the game with Flamengo. They will surely speak and resolve things like two good people that they are ”, said Barbie. And regarding the continuity of Beccacece, he remarked: “Diego chose him and he will know how Sebastián’s situation will continue. I did notice that he has significant support ”.
But if Racing is eliminated against Flamengo, the coach’s situation will be untenable. The fans, however, are worried about the future of Milito. This Sunday they will meet at the headquarters of Miter Avenue to shout “Milito is not leaving”, even though the idol didn’t say a word about it.
