The club had more than 50 injuries this season
Atletico Madrid forward Angel Correa has returned to training since Friday. Recovering from his first muscle injury since arriving at the club went going well. Leaving the door open for him, possibly playing at San Mames on June 14th. The Argentine will only appear in the first game of Atletico only after the break if there is no risk of worsening his muscle injury. Which would leave Simeone without one of his most valuable assets this season. Atletico’s approach to this is the same as the whole season. The club does not risk any players, trying to avoid the situation they found themselves in last season.
This is because in the 2018/19 campaign, they had more than 50 injuries, and players like Jose Gimenez, Stefan Savic, Vitolo, and Diego Costa suffered from recurring problems, most of which were muscular. For this reason, the club’s medical staff introduced a policy of not forcing players back before they were ready. However, players such as Savić and Gimenez had injuries at the beginning of the season that flared up again when they returned to action. The list of injuries has been reduced compared to last year. However, due to non-risking players such as Correa, Joao Felix, and Sime Vrsaljko.
