Last Friday in the 4-4 draw between Alianza Petrolera and Deportivo Cali at the Daniel Villa Zapata stadium in Barrancabermeja, at the end of it some delicate images were seen due to the trauma suffered by the striker and captain of the sugar cast, Teófilo Gutiérrez, who He had to be removed on a stretcher and taken to a care center, where the next day he was able to return with the team to the city of Cali.
At noon this Monday, the Verdiblanco sports doctor, Gustavo Fabian Portela Mejía, for the program ‘El Super Combo del Deporte’, clarified a little how that situation was experienced and Teo’s medical news.
“Let’s say that in the clinical part he is still under observation, he had a major trauma that compromised his state of consciousness at the time, which required transfer to the care center. In addition, he presented a wound on the scalp; in the care center we performed cervical x-rays, skull, brain CT, where everything was found to be normal”
“The observation process was carried out as it is in the protocols, it had an evolution, it recovered its levels of consciousness, its strength, we did not find neurological deficit with which it had a way out, but as it should be understood there is a post-trauma observation process, in what we are doing. You have to give him the necessary time so that he can come back”, added Portela about Teo.
He then spoke about the other players who are in his medical department: “the subject of Guillermo Burdisso is over, he is already on the pitch. Juan Esteban Franco is also in the field. In the second instance, we are observing Mafla, not a muscle injury but an overload in the right adductor and Mosquera who presented a muscle injury in the anterior part of the right thigh.
He was asked if the defender of the Colombian National Team and Everton of England, Yerry Mina, returned to the country to be evaluated by him, to which he said that
“That is the version we have, about what you have requested that we review and evaluate it, after evaluating it I will tell you what happened.”
