The center-back has to make his Rayados debut after suffering the international problem
Monterrey center-back Hector Moreno has suffered a Class 1 thigh strain, the club said in a message that will prove to be a short-term disappointment but can still be considered a best-case scenario given the circumstances.
His muscle injury diagnosis is the mildest, and he will be absent for at least two weeks but could be back shortly afterwards.
Moreno was knocked off the pitch in Mexico’s Gold Cup final against the US last week, but wasn’t tested for the problem until he arrived at the Rayados camp.
What was said
“Hector Moreno has a first degree hamstring injury,” the club said. “After conducting the relevant studies, the prognosis for recovery is at least 14 days.”
Arrival in Monterrey
Moreno was a summer pickup truck for Rayados after becoming a free agent late last season. He had spent two years with Al-Gharafa in Qatar, but has since admitted that he never felt that the organization was the right one for him.
His return to Liga MX is a long homecoming, having last played in Mexico in 2007.
World Cup ambitions
Earlier this week, Moreno said he made a return to Liga MX, among other things, to ensure he is a top contender for El Tri’s backline at the 2022 World Cup after feeling like the time spent in Qatar was diminishing his national team Has.
“[Monterrey is a] Club where you have all the tools that I can hold myself in as physically as possible, “he said.
News that he could be back within a month is viewed as positive as he could face Mexico’s World Cup qualifier against Jamaica on September 2nd.
