Last Thursday the loss due to injury of the Mexican striker was made official Jose Juan Maciaswho tore his cruciate ligament and will be out of court for at least 8 months, in a heavy blow to the Chivas from Guadalajara.
However, it is not the first time that the ‘JJ’ is injured and remains in the dry dock, since, previously, he was also out due to injury.
When Getafe decided to sign him, José Juan Macías was injured in a game, a situation that ended up being ruled out by the technical director ‘Quique’ Sánchez.
It was on November 30, 2021, in the Copa del Rey between Getafe and Mollerusa, where the national attacker started, although at minute 25 he threw himself on the pitch with a sign of pain, for which he had to go out of exchange to give entry to Sandro.
Only months later, ‘JJ’ Macías was again left out due to injury, this time from the Mexican team that would play in the Tokyo Olympics, where he would be the replacement for Henry Martin or his dumbbell on the field of play.
The striker decided not to participate due to physical problems and because he was not up to par with his other teammates. For its part, the Tricolor did a good job and finished with the bronze medal led by Jaime Lozano as coach.
For a change, and after being removed from Getafe, José Juan Macías returned to Mexican soccer with more pain than glory, where he was “embraced” by Chivas del Guadalajara, a team that gave him a vote of confidence despite being back injured.
However, it was at the end of the last tournament when he managed to recover and have a close from bad to regular with the rojiblancos, although this time he has been injured again and is beginning to stop being profitable for the chiverío.
Although it is true that he had few opportunities to compete for a place in the final list of coach Gerardo Martino for the Qatar World Cup 2022, now with the injury everything is lost, in addition to being absent in the incipient Apertura 2022.
Recovery is expected to take 7 to 8 months, so if all goes well, his return to the professional courts will take place in February 2023. A shame!
