Papu Gómez’s continuity in the Argentine national team was barred by Lionel Messi, Di María, Rodrigo de Paul and Leandro Paredes, after learning of the behavior of their colleague, who asked Lo Celso not to recover from injury.
After being crowned world champion and having helped Argentina in the World Cup in Qatar, Papu Gómez will not be in the first games of the albiceleste as world champion, despite having been called up by Lionel Scaloni to face Panama and Curaçao in the coming days. The reason: he resorted to a witch so that a colleague would not recover from injury so that he could be summoned.
The use of black magic by the 35-year-old Sevilla midfielder was known in Qatar and, according to “ESPN”, immediately cost him the confidence of the heavyweights in the squad, such as Messi, Di Maria, De Paul and Leandro Paredes, dissatisfied with the fact that Gómez had asked a witch to prevent Giovani Lo Celso, the usual starter, from recovering from the injury that effectively ruled him out of the competition, thus opening up the possibility of him being part of the chosen Scaloni, what happened.
“During the World Cup, Papu told his colleagues that the witch had assured him that they would be world champions. And this information about Lo Celso was known after the game with the Netherlands (quarter finals). sidelines of the group and there are not even any interactions between the other players and him on social media”, said a journalist on “ESPN Argentina”.
Even so, Papu Gómez was part of Lionel Scaloni’s first list after the World Cup, after which he was removed from it without explanations being given by the Argentine federation. Everything indicates that it was the use of black magic that cost him his job.
