Paolo Guerrero and the time he would need to be fit and play in Racing

The Argentine press was following the incidents of the exams minute by minute and after the final ok, Paolo Guerrero had the floor. Next we highlight three phrases and what it means for the national attacker.

“I’m fine physically. My last game was in October, I just have to get ready and start playing”.

The first great concern for Paolo is settled. The Peruvian passed the medical exams in Racing and signed for a year with the Academy. It will be a contract for productivity –games, minutes, goals–, so Guerrero needs to get on the field as soon as possible.

“The preseason is very important since he works a lot on the physical issue, activation and a lot of work with the ball. In the preseason the reality of a player comes out ”, begins by telling us Franz Rengifo, national physical trainer. For cases like Paolo Guerrero, Franz advises that “enough preventive and strengthening work” be done.

The ‘9’ accepted that he is not active and for that he must train hard. “You have to take him with caution due to his inactivity and his age. I think that to perform optimally, at least a month of work “tells us Sebastián Morales, a Uruguayan physical trainer with experience in Peruvian soccer.

The month of work will be for Paolo to have activity with the ball again. “It will cost you because there are several months of inactivity. In addition, most of the players who are over 35 years old have problems during the preseason”, warns Franz.

That is why it will be important for Guerrero to comply with the work times and loads, to protect his knee as well. “Advancing would be risking. She is no longer 25 years old. Surely he will be able to play before, but not starting or playing a whole game, but before the month his performance will not be 100% ”Sebastian sentence.

The Argentine League begins this weekend. It is expected to see Paolo playing within a month at the latest.

“It’s a great team, intense and they have Fernando who likes to be intense and push up. That motivates any player.”

“Paolo becomes a definer”, told us Hernando Maderna, a journalist for “Olé”. And it is what Racing is looking for, a player who will take the post left by Enzo Copetti.

Racing is a team with a lot of play on the wings and reaches the opposite area a lot. In the last League he scored 41 goals and was the second highest scoring team, only surpassed by River (43) in 27 games.

According to statistics from SofaScore, Racing generates 2.3 great goal chances per game and manages to score 1.5 per game. Undoubtedly, coach Gago’s style is always to go to the front.

And there Paolo will have to do his job. Receive everything in the area, hold the defenders to generate spaces for players like Reniero and Maxi Morales, who must enable it.

“It motivated me to come to play the Libertadores. It was what I was looking for, a team that plays in the Cup”.

Arriving at a club like Racing is what Paolo expected, a team where he could be at a high level, as he requested on his birthday, on January 1.

Racing plays the Libertadores as a great challenge. In addition, three tournaments are played in Argentina: The Professional League, the League Cup and the Argentine Cup. These lead to dispute the Super Cup and the Champions Trophy (both recently won by Racing).

In South America, Paolo only won the Cup Winners’ Cup with Corinthians in 2012. That year he won the Club World Cup. But in the Libertadores his longest run was to the quarterfinals, with Inter in 2019. In 2017 he was able to play the final of the South American Cup with Flamengo, but the doping sanction kept him from that possibility.

Racing must shake off what happened in 2022, when it stayed in the group stage of the South American
