Brazilian team Flamengo FC eagerly waits for Peru's top striker Paolo Guerrero to resume training sessions starting March 20 —45 days before he completes a FIFA suspension.

According to Brazilian sports outlet Globoesporte, the 34-year-old athlete will be allowed to resume —with restrictions— his career on March 20. 

For his part, Flamengo FC's Soccer Vice-President Ricardo Lomba opened the club's doors to Guerrero. "Our intention is to count on the player," he expressed.  

In this sense, Mengao's board analyzes the forward's contract reactivation.

Such case is being addressed by the club's soccer, legal, and financial departments.

It must be noted said reactivation has not been defined yet. However, the team will intend to extend said agreement —at least— thru end-2018.

The Peruvian star's current contract with Flamengo FC ends on August 10. 

FIFA suspension

As is known, Guerrero was suspended by FIFA for one year after analyzing the adverse analytical result of the anti-doping test conducted on him following a Qualifiers match against Argentina in 2017.

Later, the governing body reduced such suspension to six months —a decision which might allow the athlete to play the 2018 World Cup.

The Predator has been training in Argentina to be in good shape for soccer's most important event taking place this year in Russia.
