Pulgar made 11 consecutive starts and risks being spared at Flamengo

Flamengo takes to the field next Wednesday (24/04), against Bolívar, in La Paz, in the third round of Group E of the Libertadores




Erick Pulgar risks being spared for Flamengo’s next matches. The Chilean has made 11 consecutive appearances this season and has become a concern in the Rossoneri’s medical department. The Chilean, therefore, will be able to start from the bench in the next round of the Libertadores group stage.

Pulgar situation in Flamengo

Last Sunday (21/04), Tite gave an interview after the goalless draw between Palmeiras and Flamengo. The Rossoneri coach then clarified that Pulgar is on the club’s “treatment list”.

“The coach’s desire is to compete and place all the athletes. However, there are some athletes with six or seven games in a row. Then the medical department says: ‘Our position is nursing.’ Today specifically we had Pedro, Nico, Ayrton, Erick Pulgar and Luiz Araújo, who were in the Giallorossi because they took important risks, so you can lose a player for six or seven games,” Tite said.

Pulgar arrived at Flamengo in July 2022. However, he took time to adapt and only established himself as a starter in 2023. The midfielder has been used a lot in 2024 and is an essential part of Tite’s tactical scheme. The Chilean has a contract with the club until December 2025.

Flamengo takes to the field next Wednesday (24/04), against Bolívar, at 9.30pm (Brasilia time), in La Paz, in the third round of Group E of the Libertadores. Despite the importance of the match, Pulgar risks being spared in Bolivia.
