Gustavo Dulanto surprised his followers last Thursday. The Peruvian defender uploaded a story on Instagram in which he appears with knee protection and leaning on a pair of crutches. “It's whatever you want, my God,” he said. Until then, the player did not provide further details of what happened.

However, a few hours ago, with the results of a medical test at hand, the former Sheriff revealed through the same channel what kind of injury he suffered. Due to the message that he spread on his official profile, the situation seems not very encouraging and, despite this, the national soccer player does not lose his good spirits.

“Unfortunately, yesterday, while training, I injured my knee. And in the studies they did, it turned out that it was the cruciate ligament”Dulanto revealed. “You have to be patient and have a good sense of humor… the bearded man knows why he does things”, added the center back who went through Universitario de Deportes.

Likewise, Gustavo warned that, despite the time he will be away from the fields, “I will come back stronger…”, noted in the social network. He also showed gratitude for those people who contacted him when he uploaded the postcard. “To everyone who wrote to ask about my health, I thank you.”.

In parallel, the defender also spoke on Twitter and stated that he is ready for the entire recovery period that he will have to go through. “There we are well positioned to face whatever comes, I consider myself a fighter and this is one more proof of the brave” , he pointed out as a sign of his character.

Gustavo Dulanto at Riga FC

After memorable campaigns with Sheriff (title and even a victory over Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabéu), the Peruvian looked for other options in the transfer market. Thus, last month his arrival at Riga FC in Latvia was confirmed.

With his new club, Dulanto played a total of four games in the local league and the last one was last Sunday against Auda. He also competed in the previous stage of the Conference League, but fell against Gil Vicente of Portugal in the tie that had the prize of access to the group round.
