News : The lesson that Salma Paralluelo gives us after breaking the crusader
In soccer and athletics of the highest level at her young age, Salma Celeste Paralluelo, one of the strongest promises of both sports at the national level, has just suffered a very hard blow. A setback that an athlete should never suffer, much less someone from his youth who has to do it.
And is that the Aragonese suffered a tear of the anterior cruciate ligament of the knee in an action of the game that his team, Villarreal, played this past weekend against Granada. The footballer, who had already scored a goal, saw her knee get caught in a fortuitous action with a rival. Although she wanted to continue playing, she had to be substituted and left the club groguet on crutches.

This will make me stronger, it will make me grow and it will give me even more strength and motivation to continue working for my dreams ”.
“My cruciate ligament injury will take me away from the tracks and soccer fields for a while, thus missing important dates, such as the World Relay World Cup, the illusion of competing in a European and U20 athletics world cup, the first phase of the European soccer sub19s, international championships, why not, being able to opt for the Olympic Games and thousands of other experiences for which I love sport ”.
“I know I’m not well, but I’ll be fine, nothing is going to take away the blind faith that I have to fulfill my dreams, I’ve worked hard and I still have to work twice as hard, but I promise myself that I’ll come back stronger and that I won’t stop. to work until I can not reach them. I had a dream when I was little when they asked me, I said that I wanted to be the best athlete and the best footballer in the world, and this complicated step is not going to take away that dream. Thank you for all the messages of support and encouragement ”.
