Santos: Orlando Ribeiro details Marcos Leonardo injury

Orlando Ribeiro talked about Marcos Leonardo’s situation with the Santos shirt; player suffered an injury against Bragantino and left the field in pain

O saints and Orlando Ribeiro are worried about Marcos Leonardo. In the match last Monday, 17th, against Red Bull Bragantino, for the Brasileirão, the striker left the field injured and had to be substituted in the first half. The player is the main name of the current squad and leaves the coach worried for the sequel to the 2022 season.

After the 2-0 victory at the Nabi Abi Chedid stadium, Orlando Ribeiro gave a press conference and opened the game in relation to Marcos Leonardo’s situation. The interim coach hinted that it is still not possible to know the severity of the injury, but he showed some concern about the severity of the injury. Even so, he believes in a quick recovery of the young striker.

We have to wait at least 24 hours. But Marcos is not even one to stay on the ground in the field. If he left it’s because he really felt it. He couldn’t go on. But he is also a warrior boy. We know that he will treat himself and, if he needs it, full time to be ready for the derby. Nobody wants to be out. I’m sure Marcos won’t want to stay either“, he stated.

In addition to talking about Marcos Leonardo, Orlando Ribeiro was also sincere about Santos’ goals in the last five rounds of the Brasileirão. The interim does not want to relax and only thinks about Libertadores. According to him, while there are chances of qualifying for the next edition, Peixe will fight until the end for a spot.

We always say that, if we have a chance mathematically, we will go in search of Libertadores. Today’s result gave us confidence to work well during the week and to play a good game against Corinthians (on Saturday, at Vila Belmiro)“, concluded the Santos coach in relation to the final stretch of Brasileirão for Peixe.
