Falcao's week starts. The 'nine' will put on his boots this Tuesday and will experience his first training as a Rayo player with his teammates. The Colombian forward, who landed last Friday in Barajas after his commitments with his national team and passed the medical examination on Saturday morning, will be under Iraola's orders on the team's return to work. This will take place in the Ciudad del Fútbol of Las Rozas Due to the maintenance work being carried out on the lawn of the Ciudad Deportiva Franjirroja.
Falcao is still pending to be presented. The president of Rayo, Raúl Martín Presa, pointed out that his debut would be held at the beginning of this week, but the date is still in the air since the intention of the club is that it takes place in the stadium with the presence of the fans. Your new fans will surely see you wearing the elastic red fringe soon, since The Colombian forward could enjoy his first minutes in next Saturday's game against Getafe (Vallecas, 2:00 p.m.). That is his goal: to make his debut in the Madrid derby.
On the other hand, the Lightning breathes a sigh of relief. Martín Merquelanz was subjected this Monday to various medical tests that have ruled out a serious knee injury, as noted by the journalist Israel Herraiz. Initially, it was feared that it could be the cruciate ligament. “Something has noticed. We are going to touch wood, that is not the worst. He has the experience of having been injured twice. Let's see if it is not like then and he is in a fright,” Iraola confessed. So it has finally been. The winger, who was already under the command of the Basque coach at Mirandés, had become an important piece for the team, chaining three titles: Real Sociedad, Granada and Levante.
