The side, who was injured in the friendly against Tenerife, has undergone surgery this Tuesday at the clinic of Dr. Ramón Cugat
Villarreal full-back Alberto Moreno has undergone surgery on the cruciate ligament in his left knee this Tuesday, so he will finally be out for six months.
The player was injured two weeks ago and at first, it was not thought that it would be so serious, but the evolution of these knee problems was not as expected, which forced more tests and a new diagnosis.
After these tests, it was decided that the player should undergo an explorative arthroscopy, with which to confirm the real extent of the problems in the player’s knee.
In this intervention, which was carried out on Tuesday afternoon at the hands of Dr. Ramón Cugat, it was confirmed that the player had an affected cruciate ligament in his left knee.
After being operated, the player will be absent for a minimum of six months, which is a problem for the coach and the team, since Moreno was the one chosen to occupy that left-wing as a starter.
After a difficult campaign, in which he could no longer play regularly due to injuries, the Andalusian side of Villarreal will be inactive again for half a year.
This injury makes the Castellón club consider looking for reinforcement or betting on Jaume Costa and Alfonso Pedraza as the alternatives to cover that left-wing.
