An official medical report was not necessary, because the protagonist himself appeared to give a reassuring message. the archer Emiliano ‘Dibu’ Martinez revealed this Sunday that his early departure from the match Aston-Villa for strong blow to the head that made him dizzy was right “a scare”.
“Thanks everyone for the messages. It was just a scare and I’ll be ready for the next game.”he published the man from Mar del Plata, accompanied by a tender image of the firstborn Santi, with both thumbs up, as a sign of approval.
On Saturday, the goalkeeper of the Argentine national team in view of the Qatar 2022 World Cup had started, as many other times in recent weeks, the alarms in the technical staff led by Lionel Scaloni.
It is that he received a severe blow to the head during Aston Villa’s visit to Newcastle and had to leave the pitch after 17 minutes of the first half. Then his team was beaten 4-0.
It had only been played a quarter of an hour when the Argentine goalkeeper covered a Joelinton shot and scored a rather long rebound. In the rush to catch the ball, his teammate, Tyrone Mings, gave him a knee to the head.
The goalkeeper with a past in Independiente and Arsenal of England received medical attention but was seen very impressed with the shot and even a little dazed. Moments later, Aston Villa manager Aaron Danks, on the advice of the club’s doctors, decided to take Dibu off the pitch.
According to what was revealed at the time, Dibu left due to dizziness and not a bone injury. And pending the official medical report of the club, the first minutes underline that this is not a serious injury but ask for caution pending the routine studies that will determine the conditions of the Argentine goalkeeper.
“After being checked by doctors, Martínez spoke fluently, was able to take a bath, changed and appeared to be in good condition,” BBC reporters from England reported.
In compliance with the health protocols that are applied in this type of headshot, Dibu will be monitored for the next 72 hours and if he responds well he will return to training at the end of next week.
For now, the same player has announced that he will be available for the next match of the English team, which will be locally against Manchester United next Sunday, November 6, for the Premier League.
