Agif/Ettore Chiereguini – Ferraresi will have a replacement at São Paulo
The main fear of any football fan is losing important players in the team they love. When the team goes through a reformulation process then any loss becomes relevant. Even considering the result against rival Palmeiras as positive, São Paulo is finding reasons to regret the confrontation last Sunday (22). Defender Nahuel Ferraresi ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee and could miss most of the season. Therefore, Rogério Ceni has already chosen a replacement.
As previously informed by the site, Ythallo, who was defending Tricolor in the Cup, should train with the main squad from now on. The player occupies Ferraresi’s place in the team’s preparation for the rest of the year, even if this does not guarantee a starting place. Already in the lineup of São Paulo, Rogério will still have four other options from March.
With the recovery of Diego Costa, who should return to the fields in a little less than two months, Soberano also has the defenders Arboleda, Alan Franco and the young Lucas Beraldo. The history of injuries among defenders is something that worries Morumbi’s stands, being the reason for drama for fans since 2022. Last season, Diego Costa, Arboleda and Miranda embezzled the team for months because of injuries. Now, another important part of the team needs to be absent.
Even with the problems found in the defense, caused by Rafinha’s ankle sprain, in which there was no fracture, São Paulo does not intend to make big signings in the sector. The only position the Club is looking for in the first third of the field is a left-back, to be a reserve for Wellington. This shows Rogério’s confidence in the names that the coach already has within the squad.
Replaced in the derby against Palmeiras by a sprained right knee, defender Nahuel Ferraresi underwent an imaging test that detected a tear in the anterior cruciate ligament, which is why the player will have to undergo surgery, at a date yet to be defined. pic.twitter.com/JVG5IPUxsq
