The Colombian has not had a good performance in the 'Academy'.

The bad moment of Edwin Cardona in Racing would now have consequences for the Colombian player, of poor performance on Friday in the 2-0 defeat against Estudiantes in La Plata, in the Argentine League.

Cardona started that day, but DT Fernando Gago replaced him in the 59th minute. Racing fans condemned him on social networks, as he did not know how to take advantage of the opportunity and showed that he is still in debt physically and football-wise.

Criticism of Cardona's performance with Racing

“Edwin Cardona came out to play as a starter. The Colombian barely added 11 minutes in the last six Racing games. In one of these '10 finals' that Gago said the team had left, he touched him from the start. The Colombian's contribution was scarce, as throughout 2022. Number 70 seems disconnected, in another tune: even when he left the pitch, he reached the central circle a few seconds after his teammates”, wrote La Nación< /b> about Cardona's performance.

“With the entry of Edwin Cardona we seek to have an associated game, with a good last pass and command of stopped balls. But the team did not have good circulation; It didn't go as we expected”, said Gago after the match.

The Racing technician, drastic with Edwin Cardona

Now, the DT made a drastic decision with Cardona: he will not take into account neither the Colombian nor Leonel Miranda in Tuesday's game against Patronato. The reason? Some “non-football reasons” and something that has affected the Colombian throughout his career: he would be overweight.

< br>“Although details were not known, Gago did not forgive the two players for acts that he considered anti-professional and that conveyed a lack of commitment in a present in which the team needs everyone in the fight for the title, in itself difficult due to the points lost in recent games”, publishes the newspaper Olé.

Cardona's continuity at the club is also in question. “With Racing he signed a contract until December 2025, after the institution agreed to pay 3,300,000 dollars between half of the pass and his salary. As confirmed by the club, if Edwin left at the end of the year, the club would have paid only 1,000,000 dollars for the coffee grower,” adds Olé.
