Regularity is not a word associated with the current situation that Paraguayan defender Fabián Balbuena lives at West Ham in England, whose last official match was on January 23 against Doncaster Rovers for the FA Cup.
Regarding this situation, Balbuena explained that it is due to a decision by coach David Moyes. “I am quite well. The team is in a good moment. It is not my turn to play for various reasons, but physically I am very well,” he explained in a talk with FALG.
West Ham is in the Champions League zone by occupying fourth place in the Premier League with 45 points. “The entire squad is ready to play. Our next rival will be Manchester City (Saturday, February 27 at 9:30),” he said.
Regarding his eventual summons to the Paraguayan National Team for the eliminatory combo against Chile and Colombia, Balbuena stated that there is a strict British government protocol. “It depends a lot on the government and the Premier League. If you travel to the red zone (South America), yes or yes, you must do a 10-day quarantine.”
Finally, he said that he maintains permanent contact with the national coach Eduardo Berizzo. “We are always chatting. West Ham has contact with the Paraguayan Football Association and I don’t think they have any inconvenience to give me up for the combo,” he concluded.
