Racing’s squad returned to training on Monday with the presence of their captain, Lisandro López, who after a brief stint at Atlanta United, in the United States, returned to the club in Avellaneda to be closer to his family. Licha is one of the most important references of Racing of the last 30 years, along with Diego Milito, and in his two previous cycles he played 213 games and scored 75 goals. In addition, he lifted the 2018-2019 Superliga and the 2019 Champions Trophy.

In the United States he played four official matches without scoring goals, and when he was consolidating in the team he suffered the loss of his father on April 27, so he returned to Argentina to accompany his family. Also, according to i
Nformó Olé, his mother would also have gone through a serious health problem and decided not to return to North America.For his part, the manager of Racing, Rubén Capria, said a few days ago: «It is valuable his arrival, it is almost a fact that he is already at the club and it is a joy that he is back part of the team and in what he means in every concept. Not just on the court, but everything he gives you outside as well.» He concluded: «You can’t welcome a guy who is from the house like Lysander, he’s part of the club’s history, an emblem of the institution. He’s a guy who’s physically strong to keep competing.»
