With the news that star striker Gerard Moreno is likely to miss several weeks of action due to a calf injury, Villarreal has been dealt a huge blow.
An article in Marca, which says that the striker is now put on the sidelines for several weeks because of the fracture in his soleus, explains the specifics of the Spain international’s injury.
To date, only Barcelona star Lionel Messi, who has scored 11 goals in 17 outings, has scored more goals in La Liga than Moreno, who has scored 10 goals in 16 appearances, while adding two assists.
In his last five games in the division, the 28-year-old has scored four goals and was really in his groove, but this will provide a big setback for him and the Yellow Submarine, who are fourth in the standings.
Due to a hamstring injury, Moreno previously missed three weeks of the season back in October.
