Vincent Janssen, the Dutch striker from Monterrey, will not be available for the match on day 9 of the Grita México 2021 Liga MX tournament. The ‘Toro’ will not be present in the Classic Regio against Tigres due to an injury. According to the medical report shared by the club, the forward will be out for six weeks.
Through the document, Rayados reported that Janssen will undergo a surgical procedure in the United States to treat his pubalgia condition. In addition to the vital duel against the UANL team, Janssen would miss the duels against Mazatlán FC, Atlas, León, Pumas and Atlético de San Luis.
The attacker from the Netherlands could return to activity on matchday 12 against Necaxa on October 4. During this season, Vincent Janssen has only played 191 minutes spread over four games. The former AZ Alkmaar and Tottenham Hotspur player was absent from the scoreboard at Grita Mexico 2021.
Faced with the loss of Vincent Janssen, José Alfonso Alvarado will have to raise his hand to have more minutes with the squad led by Javier Aguirre. The 21-year-old forward, originally from Guasave, Sinaloa, has had participation with Rayados in Grita México entering the last minutes of the matches, although he only adds 69 minutes divided into four duels. After the injury of the ‘Bull’, the ‘Banana’ could have more minutes.
The young Monterrey striker scored the tying goal against Cruz Azul in matchday 5 of Liga MX. At minute 90 + 1, Alvarado achieved the agonizing 1-1 against the Machine at the Azteca Stadium. The ‘Banana’ had barely ten minutes on the court, after replacing Carlos Rodríguez.
