Chivas de Guadalajara have started on the right foot in the Clausura 2023 Tournament, although injuries have seriously affected the club at the start of the tournament. José Juan Macías has been one of the most affected after recovering from an injury and in his first game he suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament.
Now the player will have to spend between eight and nine months off the pitch due to the severe injury, for which Ronaldo Nazário sent him a message of encouragement for his recovery and return to the pitch.
“Hello JJ how are you, how are you? Well, I’ve already heard that not very well, but this happens, huh? Same thing happened to me and I’m over it. I hope you have the head and the patience to come back strong, okay? I send you a big hug, strength and that you recover soon, “said The Phenomenon.
JJ Macías will be off the pitch for at least nine months after he during a Chivas de Guadalajara training session on Thursday, February 16. “The Guadalajara striker presents a total tear of the anterior cruciate ligament, caused by receiving an unbalanced unipodal jump, which generated a forced valgus and consequent injury,” reported the Sacred Flock.
The club from Guadalajara reported that the torn ligaments are not related to his previous injury and now the striker will have to spend a long time off the pitch.
Veljko Paunovic, Chivas coach, highlighted that he spoke with the player and expressed that it is a hard blow, but that the player knows the process and knows how to stay focused to return to the field with the Sacred Flock.
“In his own words, he told me that he understands that these things happen, and that it is his first day of recovery.. Macías is a young man with tremendous intelligence, to process things, he understands very well that in this process that he has to live, what he has to do is stay focused, ”he explained.
