The manager of River Plate, Ramon Diaz, has made it clear to David Trezeguet that he is not in his plans for the upcoming season and he would not get a place in the 25-member squad that will start the pre-season training in two weeks’ time.
Trezeguet struggled with his knee injury in the last season due to which he had to miss a lot of matches. The last time that he featured for River Plate was in March.
Trezeguet went through a knee surgery on 15th of May and he was likely to be fit for River Plate’s pre season training.
Trezeguet had signed for River Plate in December 2011. Things were not going that well for River Plate at that time as they were relegated to the second tier of Argentine football for the first time in their history. But, Trezeguet changed everything with his arrival. He showed great goal scoring form in his debut season and put up some great performances to help his team get back to the Primera Division.
Trezeguet ended the season as the second leading goal scorer for River Plate with 13 goals.
The French veteran made a fine start in the next season as well and netted for the first time in Primera Division against Newell’s Old Boys in September.
He scored a couple of more goals in the Primera division before suffering a nasty knee injury in March which ruled him out for the rest of the season.
Trezeguet has so far featured for River Plate in 35 games and has found the back of the net 16 times.
The decision of the club management to keep Trezeguet out of the pre-season training squad might make fans unhappy as they absolutely love the 35 years old French veteran.
