— Gabriel has enthesopathy. It is an overuse injury to the adductors. It’s not today. We had already diagnosed and made a treatment plan at the end of the year with a small regenerative medicine intervention, using orthobiologicals. We had been controlling the injury, at times he felt more pain, at other times he was asymptomatic. Given all this, with six games remaining, we decided to treat him and carry out the procedure at the end of the year. If by the end of the year the pain was disabling -, said Tannure, about Gabigol’s painting.
— Allan had an injury on September 13th, he tore the plantar fascia of his left foot. As we notified, it was a period of eight to 12 weeks. Within that time, and in fact it hadn’t even completed the initial eight weeks, he had a chronic injury to his right ankle. We were scheduled to have surgery at the end of the year – highlighted the doctor Flamengo.
— David Luiz on October 19th, against Cruzeiro, had a serious sprain. He underwent tests and had a ligament rupture. He is progressing well, and we hope he will begin the transition next week. The deadline is six to eight weeks. There are mild, moderate or severe sprains. He is a unique professional, just like Allan too -, he concluded.
