Lucas Pratto left this Sunday one of the most painful images to have occurred in a football match so far this year. The former River scorer suffered a fracture in his right ankle as a result of a play in which he threw himself to the ground to retrieve the ball and his foot caught the grass.

The Argentine forward has not found the shooting he expected in the Netherlands, a country where he arrived to defend the Feyenoord shirt on loan with the hope of being able to add minutes and regain his best level after having lost the title in River. However, in the last year he has not been able to play even 10 games and has not scored any goals.

This Sunday, he had to enter the field with 12 minutes remaining in the game against Ajax, the Eredivisie champions, in a match corresponding to matchday 32 of the Netherlands tournament. The former Vélez and Boca Juniors entered when the score was 0-2 against to seek the feat, but at the minute the visitor scored the third, for which he liquidated the actions.

When the clock struck the 90th minute, Pratto threw himself to the ground to dispute a ball and bad luck wanted his right foot to get caught in the grass, leveraging him with the rest of his body, due to which his ankle could not withstand such force and it yielded. The club issued a brief statement in which it reported that the Argentine gunner suffered a fracture and will be operated on today.

After the scene, the Bear had to be removed from the court and went straight to the hospital where they conducted studies to determine the severity of the injury: “I was in the locker room and I could only shake his hand,” said his teammate Bryan Linssen: “There wasn’t much to say.”

Beyond this physical inconvenience, the 33-year-old Argentine was not going to be taken into account by Feyenoord, which is ranked fifth in the table, so in four weeks he had to return to Argentina to join River Plate, owner of your pass. Now, he will have to use the remainder of May, and probably more weeks, to recover from this painful injury.
