Olympia Warriors have lost the services of their Mexican striker-cum midfielder Eduardo Garza Cabello for the season.

Cabello broke an ankle in a tackle after just a quarter of an hour of last night’s Milan Lakoseljac Memorial Trophy semi-final against Glenorchy Knights, which Olympia won 1-0.

He had a medical examination this morning which confirmed the break.

He will undergo surgery for the injury on Wednesday.

Cabello is expected to fly home to Mexico within the next week or so.

Olympia president George Mamacas said the club was devastated by the news and would like to bring Cabello back for the 2014 season.

Cabello arrived in Tasmania early this year to attend university and was signed by the University club and trained with them.

He had not played for University before Olympia realised his potential and snapped him up for their Victory League squad.

He has scored 3 goals for Olympia in the Victory League.

Mamacas was also furious about alleged remarks made by some people directed at Cabello after the injury.

Friends of my son played 4 games in 22 hours at KGV over the Hobart Cup weekend and not one of them complained about be sore etc. No needed to keep complaining about Warrior Park. The difference is in the base and KGV had at least $500 000 more spent on it so there is no use trying to compare anymore. Warrior Park is at one end of the scale and KGV is at the other end. This is trying to compare a Holden to a BMW


my son trains and plays on Warrior Park 4 times a week and has not had any injury or soreness. Harden the X#$@ up!

Typical Warriors reply

He is not of that quality, Cains is by far a more rounded player & he will struggle

As good as cairns is I think you will find the gap is much larger than some people think as cairns trialled on the mainland in pre season and ended up back here and hes one of the better players
