Luis Martínez to Undergo Knee Surgery

red crossLuis Martínez’s Clausura 2017 has come to an early and untimely end just one game into the season.

The Tigres UANL midfielder had to be subbed out of the universitarios’ Jornada 1 match against Santos Laguna in the 76th minute with a nasty-looking knee injury, and the club is now reporting the extent of the 22-year-old’s injury.

Tigres reported via their Twitter account that Martínez “suffered a total rupture of the medial collateral and anterior cruciate ligaments (MCL and ACL) and a torn lateral meniscus” in his right knee.

He will undergo surgery, after which a timetable will be determined for his recovery.
