It means the 33 year old defensive midfielder will be forced to sit out their trip to Chiapas at the weekend. It is a major blow for Tigres, who are already without Arevalo’s regular partner in centre mid Jose ‘Gringo’ Torres, who has had surgery for a slipped disk.

Arevalo, who was widely regarded as one of Uruguay’s best players in last summer’s World Cup in Brazil, was linked with a move to Liverpool earlier this year, a move that could yet be resurrected if Lucas leaves the Anfield club this summer.

“Little by little I am improving, I feel better. It’s not good to miss games, you always want to be on the pitch and be a participant, but injury issues have to be dealt with and I must make the necessary recovery” he said.

Tigres won 3-0 in their Copa Libertadores curtain raiser last night against Juan Aurich. They are currently 8th in the Liga MX, but are slowly recovering after a poor start to the 2015 campaign.
