With Lucas Moura and then Son, but not for the injury, but I was just trying to give them a little bit of a break, 15 minutes to rest.”
He added, “Then the next day, he felt some muscle pain, in his leg, he underwent x-rays, and now we have to get the correct evaluation from the doctors.”
He stressed, “He has an injury, I don’t know, but most likely he will remain away from training sessions until the end of this period, until the international break.”
