The return of red frames has a confirmed date. After a long recovery process from the ruptured cruciate ligament in his right knee that he suffered in October of last year in a Professional Soccer League match, the trip surrounded by suspicions to Miami to intensify his work and heal the tear faster suffered in reserve, the central was summoned by the coach Jorge Almiron for the match that Boca will play against Independent this Saturday at 17.
The image of Rojo playing in the First Division was far away as a result of the repeated injuries he suffered during his stay at the xeneize. With the list presented by Almirón for the last date of the LPF, it seems that the captain is physically fit and will have the chance to play again -or at least be a substitute- after a long time off the field.

However, Rojo had received the ‘ok’ from the Football Council and the coaching staff to continue his recovery process in Miami.
“Marcos spoke with me and with the people from the Council. It was a way to get out of the environment a little, go with the family and have a treatment. He was having a hard time and he was sad because he wanted to come back and he had a recurrence of the injury. All of this caused him stress. It is not that they are going to cure him there and they are magicians, but they are going to put together the emotional and recovery part. In a week or ten days he will be with us. He is a very important player on and off the pitch, ”said Almirón when asked about the central defender’s health excursion.
Now Red is ready to come back. It is known, of course, the goal is the Copa Libertadores.
