Why didn’t Falcao play with Rayo? Iraola explains the absence of the Tiger

Andoni Iraola, coach of Rayo Vallecano, justified the non-participation of Radamel Falcao against Mallorca in the unnecessary situation of taking a risk when the team had controlled a game that they won easily.

Falcao was injured against Real Madrid on November 6 when suffering a tear in the adductor magnus of the right thigh. In just two weeks, the Colombian recovered to be available against Mallorca and occupied a place on the bench, although he did not get to play the game that his team won (3-1) against Mallorca.

“If it had been necessary, I could have played but we assumed a risk because the evolution of an injury of about 21 days in 16 or 17 has been good. When you cut deadlines there is always that risk and today luckily we didn’t need him, but if he had decided he would have been able to play because he was available and he was eager, “Iraola said at a press conference.

With this victory, Rayo Vallecano remains sixth in the standings with 23 points, to three of the Champions League spots.
