This is an episode that would have gone well. Since Eduardo Camavinga was in a duel with Christopher Nkunku when the latter was injured on Tuesday, the Madrid midfielder would necessarily be responsible for the misfortunes of the Leipzig striker, at least with regard to social networks, very virulent with the young midfielder (20 years old) this Wednesday .
The reality is more nuanced. Yes, Camavinga was in the duel but, no, he did not touch his compatriot. Nkunku injured himself on the change of direction he tried to operate on the action, causing an unfortunate twist in his left knee. And his package.
Camavinga uncomfortable at first
This did not prevent the former Rennais from feeling uncomfortable at first. He was especially contrite, sorry, pained when he learned that the current top scorer in the Bundesliga would not fly with the group to Doha the next day. He even came to see him in his room in Clairefontaine, just before his very emotional departure, around half past midnight, by taxi, to go home to his parents.
Messages, particularly of a racist nature, sent on social networks are managed by the people who deal with Camavinga’s communication who ensure that the latter is not affected. In the same way, this Wednesday, when flying to Doha, the Madrid native had the serene smile of someone who knew he had nothing to be ashamed of. In the entourage of the Blues, it is thus ensured that his morale is at the top. And that he is ready to meet the challenges of a World Cup.
