Midfielder left the pitch in the first half against Palmeiras and could be absent in the next match
Paulo Henrique Ganso played in just 18 minutes of the first half in the 1-1 draw between Palmeiras and Fluminense, at Allianz Parque, this Sunday (8), for the fifth round of the Brazilian Championship. It turns out that shirt 10 felt a problem in his right thigh and asked to be substituted after taking a corner. He gave way to Nonato and started the geo treatment while still on the bench.
Ganso is one of the highlights of Fluminense in 2022 and had his best season for Tricolor since he arrived at the Club, in 2019. The midfielder will still need to be reassessed by the medical department to know the seriousness of the problem, but his presence is already taken as a doubt for the team’s next appointment.
“The Goose felt discomfort, but nothing serious. So much so that he stayed on the field still, took the corner. Something happened, but nothing to be more worried about“, pointed out the coach Fernando Diniz about the player’s situation. With space as a starter, Ganso has four goals and three assists in the current season for Fluminense.
With the tie, Fluminense occupies the fifteenth place in the Brazilian table, with five points added in five matches. Tricolor turns its attention to the return game of the Copa do Brasil, in Serra Dourada, on Wednesday (11), against Vila Nova-GO, at 21:30.
