A blow for Argentina as Manuel LANZINI will not be going to Rio.
Julio OLARTICOECHEA will not be able to count on Manuel LANZINI for Rio as he’s been ruled out due to a knee injury which he sustained in the friendly match against Colombia. West Ham’s physio Stijn VANDENBROUCKE also commented on LANZINI’s injury. Here’s what he had to say:
“We are in contact with Manuel and the Argentine Football Association. We want him to return and be evaluated by our staff as soon as possible.”
While not confirmed yet, there are reports that Cristian PAVON of Boca Juniors will replace him.
