Tigres de la UANL got off to an unexpected start in the Liga MX Grita México 2021 tournament. However, in the last two days the team led by Miguel Herrera has shown its best face and has shown that it is growing as the championship progresses. ‘El Piojo’ Herrera has had to deal with the casualties of vital figures of the feline team at this start of the season. André Pierre Gignac and Guido Pizarro, due to injury, have been separated from the team.
The French forward reported to the varsity team after participating in the group stage with his national team at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. Gignac has not been able to play a minute of this tournament due to injury. In the case of the Argentine midfielder, he suffered a hidden fracture in the head of the left fibula. The fans of Tigres have insistently wondered when these two historical players of the Monterrey squad will be able to return.
According to the latest reports, both players are progressing favorably from their respective injuries and could soon return to join the first team. According to Telediario, both André Pierre Gignac and Guido Pizarro could be at the disposal of Miguel Herrera for matchday 8 of Grita México 2021, when Tigres receives León. The match is scheduled to be played on September 11 at the University Stadium.
This report indicates that the two players have felt better and that they are responding favorably, so much so that they could be active in the match against La Fiera. After matchday 7, there will be a stoppage in Liga MX due to the FIFA date. After the first days of qualifying for the Qatar 2022 World Cup, the activity of Mexican soccer will resume. By then Pizarro and Gignac are expected to be ready.
