Barcelona afraid for araujos injury

Gaston Tildi, vice-president of the Uruguayan Football Association, provided an update on the situation, reporting that Barcelona are concerned about Ronald Araujo’s return from injury.

The centre-back is part of the World Cup squad but did not feature in Thursday’s 0-0 draw with South Korea. It remains to be seen whether Araujo will play in any of Uruguay’s games, but Tealdi tried to allay Barcelona’s fears that the defender is rushing his recovery.

Uruguay play Portugal again on Monday and finish their group stage match against Ghana next Friday.

Barcelona will closely monitor the progress and performance of the 17 players from the various national teams participating in the World Cup in Qatar. Ronald Araujo is one of them and he is the one who cares the most in the short term. The centre-back suffered a hip injury on September 24 and participated in a football match without medical clearance. Troubles even forced him to operate.

The defender is making good progress with Blaugrana experts monitoring his recovery, but Barcelona fear his national team will force him back. He left on condition that he did not play the first match of the tournament. Barcelona spoke to the Uruguayan federation and asked for more caution. They also threatened to go to FIFA if they put the professional’s health at risk. “Basically, Ronald is doing well and improving every day,” Uruguayan coach Diego Alonso said on Wednesday.

“His body tells him when it’s right. “He’s getting better and we’re very pleased with the way he’s doing.”

Uruguay’s national team will play South Korea on Thursday. However, Camp Nou managers do not expect Araujo to play in that game or the next one. yes, with conditions.
Xavi approved the defender’s move to the World Cup because he understood psychologically that it would positively affect his recovery. But Barcelona don’t expect him to play just yet.

So Barcelona are on guard and somewhat worried, although they are confident that Araujo will not play. As reported by RAC 1, Uruguay refused to sign the documents sent by Barcelona.

The Catalan club are considering filing an official complaint with FIFA if Uruguay recognize Araujo minutes earlier than the agreed time. This has already been reported to the Commonwealth of Uruguay and the Blaugrana consider it a warning.
