He tried the field up to three times, but had to retire in the 17th minute of a match against Sevilla that Valencia ended up losing.
knew the importance of adding the three points, so he tried to overcome the pain caused by the fall after a jump with Ocampos in the first bars of the game.
But her back wouldn't allow it.
The Hispanic-Brazilian has been subjected to tests that indicate that he suffers a "
fracture of the transverse processes
of several lumbar vertebrae", collects the medical report issued by Valencia, where there is no mention of the recovery period and only details that the central will continue "A conservative treatment and the team will be rejoined when there is clinical improvement."
The transverse process is a protrusion of the vertebra in the form of lateral wings that can be broken by a severe blow to the back or a fall, causing intense pain.
The estimated recovery depends on the evolution of the patient, but in the case of Paulista, it will not be less than a month, which will make him miss the Granada match and those at the beginning of the year against Cádiz, Yeclano in Copa, Valladolid, Osasuna and Athletic.
It is not the first time that Paulista has suffered an injury in this area.
In July 2018, he fractured the L2 transverse process in a blow in a preseason friendly against Galatasaray in Switzerland.
It took him less than four weeks to recover, but now there are several fractures, which can lengthen the timeframes.
This is an important loss for Javi Gracia, who loses the center-back who provides the most confidence in defense.
In addition, his absence coincides with that of Hugo Guillamón, who is not recovered, which leaves
and the young
as the only alternatives for the duel against Granada next Wednesday in Los Cármenes.
