Thiago Maia reaches half of the recovery; doctor comments
Hired as one of Flamengo’s main reinforcements for the 2020 season, the year of midfielder Thiago Maia was interrupted by a serious injury just when it was established among the starters.

After undergoing surgery to reconstruct the ligaments of his right knee, the player enters his fourth month of recovery and arrives halfway to the estimated time for resuming activities with the other teammates.

The number 33 already steps on the lawn of the Ninho do Urubu, but is still in the stage of physical rehabilitation. Along with physiotherapists and trainers, Thiago does specific work and expects to at least meet the minimum period of eight months stipulated for his return.

Head of the medical department of Rubro-Negro, Márcio Tannure takes care when dealing with the player’s situation, since the operation was not the simplest. To Sports, the professional detailed the process that the player goes through, but avoided setting dates.

“He leaves physiotherapy, goes to the gym and is now going to the field. We hope that in the near future, we will be able to do physical work and gradually end the ball work until he is reinstated to the group of players. It is surgery with a return period of eight to ten months, “he said.

Hired on loan to Lille (FRA), Thiago had his bond extended with Fla in February this year. Now, the contract between the parties runs until June 2022. Despite the setback, Thiago has morale between teammates and the coaching staff, who bet on the player’s technical ability and believe he will still contribute to new achievements.

“It has evolved satisfactorily, but it is too early for us to pass on a prognosis,” said Tannure.

Without the athlete, Rogério Ceni has many options for the sector, but he has used Diego a little further back since the last Brazilian. Player of the position, Arão was moved to the defense and opened more space for youngsters like João Gomes and Hugo Moura.

At the end of the Carioca table, Fla is getting ready to face Madureira on Monday (5), at 9 pm, at Raulino de Oliveira, in Volta Redonda. In the last round, the team beat Bangu 3-0.
