Leeds core FW, ankle injury… to be out for 2 months
Leeds United’s attacking striker Rodrigo Moreno has suffered a long-term injury.
Leeds said on the club website on the 3rd (Korean time), “Moreno will be out for two months after suffering an ankle injury in the England FA Cup match against Accrington Thrantis last year. He suffered bone and ligament damage and underwent minor surgery. The doctors are confident that he will return to the game at the end of March.”
Moreno, who holds dual Brazilian and Spanish citizenship, started his youth career with CR Flamengo in 2002. After that, he moved to Real Madrid in 2009 and gathered expectations. However, at Real, he could not show anything like this, and after going through Benfica, he played for Valencia from the 2014-15 season. 먹튀검증
It was in the 2017-18 season that his talent blossomed. As the team’s forward striker, Moreno was responsible for both scoring and assisting. At the time, Moreno played 43 games in all competitions and scored 19 goals and 7 assists, making a big contribution to leading the team to 4th place. In the 2018-19 season, he scored the winning goal against Barcelona in the Copa del Rey final, giving the team a trophy in 11 years.
After that, he wore the Leeds uniform. In the 2020-21 season, Leeds achieved promotion to the English Premier League (EPL) after 16 years. Accordingly, he renewed the club’s highest transfer fee and brought Moreno. Moreno has been working hard on the team’s remaining competition by recording close to 10 attack points every season at Leeds.
In particular, his performance this season has been explosive. Moreno is playing an important role in helping the team fight relegation, scoring 10 goals and 1 assist in the league alone. Leeds are 15th in the league with 18 points having played one game less.
But bad news happened at a crucial time. Moreno was injured in the 4th round of the English FA Cup against Accrington Thranti on the 28th and was forced to miss for two months. After all, Patrick Bamford has to come alive. Bamford played an active role as the team’s key forward, scoring 17 goals and 8 assists in the EPL in the 2020-21 season. However, after returning from a long-term injury last season, he is still unable to regain his former form. With Moreno out with an injury, Bamford’s role seems to be more important than ever.
