After the surprising victory of Rayados de Monterrey against Pumas de la UNAM (0-1), the strategist of the Monterrey team, Fernando Ortiz, lamented the injuries of Erick Aguirre, Rodrigo Aguirre, and Jordi Cortizo. Well, it is estimated that the latter will miss the rest of the Apertura 2023 due to injury.
Cortizo missed the 2023 Apertura
As a result of a series of split balls, Jordi Cortizo fell into the field of play unusually and then had to be removed from the field of play. Although initially estimated to be a sprained clavicle, according to the Argentine strategist, it could be a fracture.
“Erick (Aguirre) was surprised; during the week he worked hard; now he passed, and it happens; these are the things that cannot be predicted. I think Jordi (Cortizo) has a broken collarbone; we will lose him for the rest of the championship. “Rodri (Aguirre) couldn’t stop the bleeding; he was dizzy. I also lost a week, but here we are.”
On the other hand, Tano Ortiz expressed his pride and gratitude for the efforts of his players. Highlighting his ability to overcome not only the injuries suffered by the team but also the three he suffered in the duel at the Olympic University Stadium.
“To simplify what happened, I had some players who had a lot of balls. Inside, we know what we are going through, and if there is an injury, the partner who comes in shows courage and bravery. The things we worked on during the week didn’t work; we had to change the tactical plan. In short, I have players with a lot of balls. “
