With 19 games and 3 goals, Emiliano Amor was an important part of the title won by Colo Colo in the 2022 National Championship, but everything collapsed at the end of the year. At his best moment and while he was doing the preseason to face the 2023 season, the Argentine defender suffered a serious injury that forced him to undergo surgery and be sidelined for several months.
In a friendly match with River Plate, the Cacique defender suffered a pain in his ankle and made the decision to undergo surgery in Spain, so he spent almost 9 months out of the field. At the beginning of August, the former Vélez received a medical release, but he has not yet added minutes to the team’s shirt. Colo Colo and the fans are starting to worry.
According to some journalists, the decision of Gustavo Quinteros has to do with the fact that he does not see it as 100% from a football point of view after a long time without playing. The coach believed that the player’s situation was not the same as his teammates and that is why he again rejected those called for the next team game.
Albo will face Cobresal this Saturday at 5:30 pm (Santiago and Buenos Aires time, under three in CDMX) on the 24th of the 2023 National Championship and the Argentine will have to watch the game again from audience. It should be noted that, formally, he can play in the tournament, because he was registered for the second semester in place of Matías de los Santos, who also suffered a serious injury and will spend several months in carefully.
This is not final
A Colo Colo They only have 8 games left to try to reduce the lead, Cobresal, and retain the National Championship title. Considering that Cacique’s next game was precisely against the Miners, the fans considered it as a true finale and as the last chance to have a chance to become champion.
However, sports journalist Juan Cristóbal Guarello is against this idea. “The character of a final is given to a game that is not necessarily a final because Everton and Huachipato are still involved in the fight, which will be the big winner of the date. If Albo beats Cobresal and Huachipato beats Everton, three they score in Cobresal and are only one stone away,” said the reporter.
