The coach Rogério Ceni will again have a problem to choose the Flamengo defender for the game against Volta Redonda, Saturday, at Maracanã, in a duel that is worth the Guanabara Cup title. Defender Rodrigo Caio once again felt muscle discomfort in one of his thighs (the same spot that suffered a recent injury) and worries the Red-Black coaching staff.
The defender returned to feeling the muscle discomfort last Saturday, in the match against Portuguesa-RJ. The player left the field during the break.
In an interview right after the end of the first half, shirt number 3 stated that the state of the lawn of Ilha do Governador contributed to the pains returning.

According to information, Rodrigo Caio took an image exam this week to find out the degree of the injury, which was considered ‘mild’, but which worries for Flamengo’s next two games, against Volta Redonda (on Saturday, for the Guanabara Cup ) and La Calera (on Tuesday, for Libertadores da América).
This Wednesday, the squad gained a break, and the re-presentation is scheduled for the morning of this Thursday (22), when the coach Rogério Ceni starts the preparation for the duel against Volta Redonda. The trend is that Rodrigo Caio will miss the team for intense work with physiotherapy.
