Alberto Moreno, left-back, Villarreal Torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) Make the right to play this season to be completed.

The 29-year-old former Liverpool player is a key player in the team. “Yellow submarine” of coach Unai Emery, who is ranked seventh in the La Liga table.

However, ahead of Villarreal’s visit to Juventus in the Champions League round of 16 second leg, the club confirmed that Moreno has suffered a right knee ACL injury . From the last game where they lost 1-0 to Osasuna and had to finish the semester,

Moreno posted on Instagram that “After the inspection is complete The worst news was confirmed. My knee ligament tore and I had to be off the pitch for a while.”

“Now is the time to get up and look ahead with a positive mindset and a smile. Thank you for all your support.”

Many players commented to support the Spanish back. Including former Liverpool team-mates Jordan Henderson and Andy Robertson among others.

Villarreal didn’t reveal how long he’ll be out for but it’s thought that he’ll miss the rest of the season at least. It’s a real blow for the Yellow Submarine as well as the Andalusian personally; he’d been enjoying a fine campaign under Unai Emery.

The 29-year-old has made 35 appearances so far this season, contributing six goals and four assists from the left flank. Villarreal will be unable to count on him for their crucial Champions League last 16 second leg against Juventus.

Moreno suffered a knee ligament problem once in the 2020/21 season, when he was almost out of action. 200 days and missed 41 games for Villarreal.
