On the 18th of last month, Woori Card recruited Riverman Agamez (37) as a replacement for Leo Andrich (28), who suffered a knee injury.
Agamez played for Hyundai Capital in the 2013-2014 season and later led the team to the postseason for the first time in the 2018-2019 season as a member of Woori Card. Agamez, who has good memories with Woori Card, returned to the V-League once again with a love call from manager Shin Young-cheol. 스포츠토토
He was off to a bad start. His first two games were rather lackluster. However, he proved his worth in the third match by returning to his former mighty form. In the away match against Woori Card on the 3rd, both teams bombed the court with the most 40 points and an attack success rate of 62%. In particular, the 8 serving points he showed in the match proved why he is an ace.
But Agarez’s smile didn’t last long. In a game against KB Insurance held at the Uijeongbu Gymnasium in Gyeonggi-do on the 9th, while blocking to block Nicola’s attack, he collapsed on the court complaining of pain in the inner thigh of his left leg during the landing process. As a result of the post-game examination, it was found that 8 cm of the adductor muscle was torn.
Director Shin Young-chul said of Agamez’s injury, “I think we’ll have to wait for about a week. It’s hard to say when he’ll recover.”
Usually, injured players do not accompany away games to focus on treatment. However, after treatment and training in the morning, Agamez came to the stadium to cheer on his teammates. He could not sit on the bench due to an injury, but he cheered harder than anyone else in the crowd with an interpreter.
Whenever my teammates made a great play, I jumped up and clapped with my thumbs up, and when a mistake came out, I regretted it together. Even though he was not on the court, he was as good as the players on the court in his heart.
In the game, Woori Card played a tight match, but felt the absence of foreign players and failed to overcome the last hurdle, losing with a set score of 1-3 (25-27, 25-22, 13-25, 21-25). The moment the defeat was confirmed, Agamez bowed his head and blamed himself.
On the other hand, Woori Card, which is busy fighting OK Financial Group and KEPCO for mid-ranking, might recognize an alternative foreign player, but coach Shin Young-chul decided to wait and trust Agamez. Agemez, who suffered a torn thigh muscle, is said to be making a rapid recovery and could be back on the court in a week.
