Barça’s medical services foresee a plague of injuries

first_imgTraditionally, the most conflictive months of injury during the season are usually at the beginning of the season, August and September, coinciding with the return of the players’ vacation period, and the last months of the course, when the workload has built up and forces begin to falter. Curiously here we find “The perfect storm”, according to club sources, since “the two-month break coincides with the final stretch.”This same season, without going any further, in the months of August and September a total of ten injured were accumulated, five per month. Namely: Messi (soleus), Neto (left hand scaphoid and operation), Suárez (soleus), Dembélé (femoral biceps) and Junior (knee ligament), in August, and Umtiti (foot), Alba (femoral biceps), Messi (soleus relapse), Ansu Fati (patellar tendon) and Dembélé (femoral biceps) again, in September. Also, in the club they do not forget that Leo was injured in his first training session of the season.All these antecedents force the medical services to multiply the scenarios before the possibility of an injury plague. In fact, This year up to a total of twelve players have had problems of greater or lesser magnitude in the hamstrings and in the joints: Dembélé and Suárez even undergoing surgery.As of today there are only two players on the roster who have emerged immune to injury. Curiously, we are talking about the two big signings of the summer: Frenkie de Jong and Antoine Griezmann. An internal report from the medical services of FC Barcelona makes clear the enormous concern within the club for the health of its players. And we are not talking precisely about the coronavirus virus but about the high risk of injury in the event that activity is restarted after two months of confinement.In the most optimistic scenario, the possibility of suffering “between five to ten injuries” during the first month of competition is emphasized. There are multiple reasons for making this type of forecast: two-month period of confinement with its inevitable consequences on physical fitness, deficit training due to the protocol set by LaLiga, absence of friendlies to help catch the competition rhythm, insufficient time for recovery of muscle fatigue between matches and matches -se speaks for 72 hours-, high temperatures that will affect the effort and maximum mental demand when playing the decisive final stretch of LaLiga and the Champions in just over two months.Also in the report Special emphasis is placed on prevention work during the rehabilitation phase “in the hamstrings and joints.” Hence, training before the start of the competition must focus on minimizing the risks with “a specific job” in the most risky players or those with a history. Antonio Gómez, the physical trainer of the first team that supervises strength work in the gym, will have a prominent role in this prevention work.Taking into account that the current Quique Setién squad is one of the shortest in LaLiga, with only 19 footballers, With the added handicap of a long-term injured player, Dembélé, among them, although also with the presence of Ansu Fati, we are talking about a limit situation, especially thinking that after the League the Champions League will come.last_img read more
