The Croatian breaks the already operated crusader: stop for another 6 months Rossoblù back on the market and with many knots to untie
CAGLIARI. Crusader again broken for Marko Rog. And now the Croatian midfielder, who had already started re-training with Cagliari and was on the pitch against Augsburg last Saturday, will have to stay out for at least six months. At least these are the recovery times of his teammate Pavoletti, who was hit (also twice) by the same type of injury. A blow for the player. And for the team.
The player felt pain during the match played in Germany on Saturday. Rog was subjected yesterday morning to a specialist examination and instrumental tests in the “Korian” clinic in Quartu.
“The investigations – reads the Cagliari press release – highlighted the complete rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament of the right knee, implanted by Professor Christian Fink at the” Hochrum “clinic in Innsbruck last December, previously intervened to reconstruct twice also the cruciate ligament of the attacker Leonardo Pavoletti “
Now new investigations and specialist assessments in view of defining the procedure to which the Croatian player will have to undergo. The surgery after the injury with Roma last season was perfectly successful. And Rog already from Pejo seemed to be back the same as a year ago. This is the impression in the first training sessions and in family matches.
On Saturday the return to the field in Augusta: Rog entered in the 64th minute, but in the 72nd minute he was forced to leave due to a pain in his knee. Now the doctors’ verdict. An injury that will force Cagliari to rethink its market strategies.
The other bolt from the blue – of a completely different nature – is the proposal from Atlanta, USA, to Joao Pedro: a multi-year contract that would allow the Brazilian to approach the end of his career with a flourish. An economic question: the player would be tempted to sign up, but Atlanta must also convince Cagliari. That without his captain he would be forced to renounce a player from (this is the spoils of the last two tournaments) 16-18 goals. Two problems that add to the question marks concerning the future of Nandez, Nainggolan, Godin and Simeone.
Today’s program. Departure from Assemini, then tonight the first training session at the Wind Stadium. Double session tomorrow. On Wednesday the match against Canzi’s Olbia. On Saturday, however, the last luxury friendly match against Mallorca.
