“Told my 7-year-old son not to ‘head’, it’s clear my body is damaged”…Manchester United defender’s ‘shock’ confession

Manchester United defender Raphael Varane has talked about the risk of concussion.

“Rafael Varane advises his 7-year-old son not to head,” soccer media ‘Goal Dotcom’ reported on the 2nd (Korea Standard Time).

Varane was once the world’s best defender. He was tall at 191 centimeters, but was fast in speed. He was also good at stealing balls without fouls due to his good defensive intelligence. During the Real Madrid era, he scored 17 goals and seven assists in a total of 360 games.

He also had a spectacular winning experience. He topped the Spanish La Liga title three times, the UEFA Champions League four times, and the Copa del Rey one time. He also lifted the trophy four times at the FIFA Club World Cup. In 2019, he ranked 11th in the FIFA World Cup

He joined Manchester United ahead of the 2021/22 season. However, he did not perform as well as expected. He displayed outstanding defense capability when playing, but due to minor injuries, he played only 29 games. Nevertheless, he showed off performance worthy of his name last season. 여우알바

However, Varane recently confessed a shocking fact. According to the media, Varane was absent earlier this season due to eye problems.

Varane said, “The first time I heard about a micro concussion was when I talked to experts this season. There were many cases where I didn’t understand and didn’t even think about getting tested as a player.”

“I headed the ball repeatedly during the first match of this season. However, from the next day onwards, I felt abnormally tired and tired in my eyes. I reported this to the staff, and they advised me not to play. I was tested instead of playing in the next match,” he explained.

“My 7-year-old son plays soccer. I advised him not to head. I know that in the long run, repeated shocks can have detrimental effects, even if they do not cause immediate trauma.”

Varane said, “I don’t know if I can live to be 100, but I’m sure my body is damaged. As a top-level soccer player, I’m used to pain. We are soldiers, tough guys, and symbols of physical strength, but we rarely see these symptoms.”

“When my legs hurt and I limp, everyone sees me. However, it feels weak to say that I have fatigue and migraines due to head injuries. That’s why we tell ourselves that the pain will pass,” he said, adding that we need to be wary of concussions.
