Mbemba was suffering from obvious physical remnants in the match he played with the Democratic Republic of the Congo against Madagascar in the African qualifying zone for the World Cup in Qatar. The FC Porto player was the target of a particularly harsh entry, with the match referee’s approval, a move that endangered his physical integrity and could have worse consequences for the central defence.
“It was sutured quickly and now requires 10 to 14 days of rest,” Jean-Pierre Bongo, a doctor for the Congolese team, told the press that Mbemba’s injury was “not serious”. The player was stitched with several stitches in the tibia region, thus sounding the alarm between the blue and white hosts, with the important match against Milan in the Champions League group stage approaching. But given the interest of the state of Porto, it would have been better for Bemba to give some clarification on social networks.
Hello everyone, how did you see yesterday? [anteontem] I left injured. I was helped and stitched right away. The wound is not deep. I will come back stronger for the team with God’s help. Thank you all for your messages. We are together and we will not give up,” wrote the blue and white footballer, who is expected today at the Porto Gaia Training and Training Center to be duly reassessed by the medical department headed by Nelson Boga.
Everything indicates that the player will be left out of the squad for the match with Sintrense and may not be in suitable physical condition to play against Milan, at 20, in the third round of the Champions League group stage.
If the wound was superficial and did not affect the bone, which necessarily means a longer recovery period, then the possibility of Mbemba entering the match with the Italians is not excluded, but only after he was noticed in the Marquis de Olival is that. It will be possible to get a stronger idea of the dimensions of the disease.
