Nicolás OTAMENDI to train separately from Argentina team


A tweet by the official Argentina account has stated that Nicolás OTAMENDI will train separately from the rest of the team due to a slight groin problem.

With Argentina coach Jorge SAMPAOLI holding a training session on Saturday evening, the official Argentina account has sent out a tweet saying that due to a slight problem in the groin area, OTAMENDI will train away from the group on Sunday.

It doesn’t appear to be anything serious but the team appears to not want to take any necessary risks.


  1. our defence becoming mini hospital :mercado,acuna,otamendi all injured.already romero out.biglia not 100%.its a big big concern.

  2. Premier League is so competitive that many players always end up with injuries or bad form after that long season. I don’t remember any top PL players did a great competition in the recent world cups.

    • premier league is very fast that make players get exhausted.otamendi surely exhausted some days rest will serve him good.give 4-5 days off and dont play him in haiti friendly.we need him badly.i know he is not world class but a solid defender and the best we have right now.

  3. i believe playing in bad fields may cause soon as they leave argentina it will better for them.this fields not fit to play

  4. Otamendi has been of Argentina’s most consistent players for the past three years, and without any doubt he is one of the four most important players in the team. Having him in the starting XI gives any Argentina fan a peace of mind. I hope he will recover very soon. Vamos Argentina!!!

  5. i hope nothing serious.we dont have enough backups.sampaoli will not call garay even if its emergency so if ota injured pezella will take his place.we already shaky in defence with ota gone we can have problems.
