Rolfes expresses surprise, delight, and concern over surprise Palacios comeback

Simon Rolfes. Bayer 04 Leverkusen sporting director Simon Rolfes couldn’t help but reveal some slight apprehension about midfielder Exequiel Palacios’ surprise return to the Argentine national team. 

After the 22-year-old suffered a nasty injury on international duty in November, the 39-year-old executive had some concern that Palacios might have been rushed back too soon.
