“Regarding that boy, the last day he trained was Tuesday and I don’t know his whereabouts.”

A curious situation occurs in Saint Lawrence, one of the animators of the Professional League played four dates: the first reinforcement he hired in 2023 may leave without having played a minute. It’s about the Chilean Alex Ibacachethe missing footballer he was referring to Ruben Dario Insua, Ciclón coach, at the press conference after the 1-0 win against Sarmiento in Junín. It is that the 23-year-old left back left for his country alleging “personal problems” and had to return this Saturday, something that did not happen. And, in the meantime, he was seen playing a benefit game that was not part of the reasons that led him to the journey.

The former Everton, who came to the cast of Boedo on loan for a year, arrived on the recommendation of the scouting group. The Galician Insua observed him through the videos and gave the OK, but live and direct he did not see him in the best physical and football shape, so his position was to take it slowly. In the first two dates he was not available because the authorization had not yet arrived. In the third he did not enter into consideration. In his role, the left winger, he plays Malcolm Braidaone of the men with the best performance in the Barça squad.

Tuesday, as indicated by the coach, was the last day in which he trained. Then, through his representative, he notified Matias Caruzzo, professional soccer coordinator, who had to return to Chile due to personal problems. At the same time, the versions intensified that in the last rehearsal he left annoying for not having been included in the starting cast and even had a friction with a partner. The concrete thing is that he crossed the Cordillera, with the promise of returning to work with the team on Saturday. But he did not appear.

In between, he participated in a benefit meeting with Deportivo Pullally, a Viña del Mar club. The images of his participation went viral. And they made the climate even rarer. In San Lorenzo the malaise is already general, from the coaching staff and the leaders. The intention of the Board of Directors is that the issue is soon resolved favorably for all parties, although if this situation continues it will analyze legal action. The situation could be framed in a “job abandonment”.

Meanwhile, in the last hours, Matías Caruzzo was forceful on the subject: “Ibacache is not going to continue at the club. The lawyers of San Lorenzo are evaluating whether the contract is terminated by mutual agreement, and if the loan to Everton must be paid ”. It is about the 130,000 dollars of the assignment charge, which, since they have not yet been transferred, may represent a key to breaking the agreement. If that happens, the first reinforcement of 2023 would leave without officially wearing the Raven shirt.
