The midfielder will have to make his debut with Rayados after maintaining the issue on international service
Monterrey central midfielder Hector Moreno has suffered a strain in the Grade 1 hamstring, the club announced in news that will prove a disappointment in the short term but can still be considered the best case scenario under the circumstances .
His diagnosis of muscle injuries is the least, and he will miss at least two weeks, but may return shortly thereafter.
Moreno was forced off the field during the Gold Cup final against the United States last week in Mexico, but he only experienced the problem when he arrived at the Rayados camp.
What was said?
“Hector Moreno has a grade 1 muscle injury in the thigh muscles of his right thigh,” the club announced. “After the relevant studies, the prognosis for recovery is at least 14 days.”
Moreno was a summer for Rayados after becoming a free agent at the end of last season. He spent two years with Al-Gharafa in Qatar, but has since admitted he never felt the organization suited him.
His return to League MX is still a long way from coming home, as he last played locally in Mexico in 2007.
World Cup ambitions
Earlier this week, Moreno said part of the reason he returned to League MX is to ensure he is a leading candidate for El Tri’s backline in the 2022 World Cup, after feeling that the time in Qatar has reduced its national team stock.
“[Monterrey is a] club where you have all the tools, where I can keep myself physically as good as possible, ‘he said.
The news that he could then be back within a month will be considered positive, as it means he could be eligible for Mexico’s qualifier against Jamaica on September 2.
