Mauricio Pochettino disappointed with Giovani Lo Celso injury
The Argentine was asked a range of questions but spoke in length about Giovani Lo Celso and the midfielder’s injury.
Argentina was in action during the international break where Lo Celso picked up an injury in a friendly.
The 23-year-old seemed to provide a positive message after the injury but has now been ruled out till the end of October.
That is a huge blow for the side as Lo Celso was one of the best in the La Liga in the last season, but hasn’t picked up a start since joining the club.
Pochettino highlighted that it was a tough situation for Lo Celso, and everyone was disappointed with the injury (h/t Football.london):
“Always it’s a sad situation, very disappointed. For Giovani, the first months here was to adapt to a new club and new football. Everything he was doing in a very good way. We are all so disappointed because now we need to wait for him.”
Pochettino shares positive message regarding recovery
Losing the Argentine for a couple of months will take its toll on the side with the Champions League and League Cup starting.
“In the same way we need to be positive, it’s not another way to take it, but we need to be positive and try to provide him with good quality training and recovery. In the moment that he’s ready, to be strong and start to help the team again.”
Lo Celso should have a big say as to how our season goes, and it is imperative he gets back to 100% before he is put on the pitch.
