In this way, the presence of the defender at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games is at risk. The competition would start on July 23, just with the recovery time that the 22-year-old footballer has. It is a fact that it will arrive without football filming and accommodating to the operation.
Miguel Falero will have to wait for him until the last minute to know if he will have him or not for the start of the competition. He is a very important player both on and off the field of play and that ends up being an extra in the consideration. It will be a matter of seeing how the intervention evolves.
