Previous Argentine international midfielder Fernando Gago made his first appearance for New club Velez Sarsfield on Saturday, eight months after suffering from a Serious Achilles injury.
The 33-year-old was presented as a 53rd-minute substitute in Velez’s 3-1 home win over Newell’s Old Boys in the Superliga Argentina.
Gago had his agreement with the previous club Boca Juniors repealed in March, having cracked his right Achilles tendon during the side’s Copa Libertadores final defeat to nearby equals River Plate last December.
Wounds have negatively affected the previous Real Madrid and Valencia playmaker’s profession. He endured two past left Achilles tendon tears, in 2015 and 2016 individually, and a cracked anterior cruciate ligament of his right knee in 2017.
Gago has been capped multiple times(61 times) for Argentina and was a part of the Albiceleste group that wrapped runners-up to Germany at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
