Sao Paulo is entering a difficult phase without Wellington

Sao Paulo left-back Wellington suffered a right knee ligament injury in the last match against Palmeiras on Monday, and the player's absence could last between two and four weeks, leaving Sao Paulo in a difficult position as the only player in the same position as the defender. He is Patrick, who recently recovered from injury, and who is not experiencing the best moments of his career.

The Tricolor only has two left-backs in their squad, Wellington who is now injured, and young Patrick, who now has no starting player in the position. The club finds itself in a difficult situation because Patrick is not in a good phase, and has only played in two matches this year, one against Agawa. Santa Claus where only the reserves were listed, and one against Inter de Limeira, only appeared in the final minutes of the match.

And knowing Patrick's condition, the player who replaces Wellington is usually Michel Araujo, having replaced the full-back in the last match after injury. By putting his cards on the table, Michel is likely to be the player who will start in the next few matches.

Sao Paulo's problem began with the departure of Caio Paulista, who decided to continue his career at Palmeiras, leaving the club with only two left-backs. With Caio's departure, the search for another name for the position became necessary, but not prominent among the problems of the São Paulo team. The team had Wellington, who had a contract until the end of 2024, and throughout the year, the team was counting on the new signing and the sale of the player.

Following this strategy, the club tried to sign only one player in this position, Marlon do Cruzeiro, but the contract was not closed with the veteran player due to the excessively high salary demand of the agreement. With the trade period expiring last month, the team will be without the possibility of that option and will have to wait until July for the next one.

Wellington will miss Sao Paulo next month, which will leave coach Luis Zubeldia in a complicated situation in the last 3 matches in this stage of the Conmebol Libertadores tournament.
