The winger was allowed to come in against Red Star on Thursday and was immediately in the base on Sunday. “It felt like before that period again. I no longer suffer from that COVID and I feel completely recovered,” said Castro-Montes. The last news. Still, he didn’t play a full match. “I personally would have stayed a little longer, but it was the choice of the coach to take me to the side.”
Despite the return of Castro-Montes, things are going from bad to worse with the Buffalos, who are sinking further and further. “Of course this was not a pleasant match for us, we knew that we absolutely had to win this match. We started well, but came too easily behind 0-2.”
“We tried to boost each other during half-time, but we are having a hard time. Thursday’s European elimination was also hard. We have no choice, we just have to keep going. We need two, three consecutive victories, then we would have to play again. Have left. Just look at the example of KRC Genk, “Castro-Montes concluded.
