We work as a team and during this time he never complain, In addition he was performing his job as usual even do he was playing futbool soccer every Sunday.

It sounds to me like your employee is trying to get you to fill out some documentation reflecting that he was injured on the job so that his doctors will continue to treat him under the impression that workers' compensation will take care of the claim.
