Rangers: Current player makes huge claim on injured man

Image for Rangers: Current player makes huge claim on injured man

Current player Richard Foster has claimed that Alfredo Morelos’ injury could have been swerved if he played fewer games for Rangers.

Alfredo Morelos picked up a thigh injury whilst on international duty with Colombia, which has consequently meant that he will miss the remainder of the season. The forward being side-lined was a huge loss for Rangers in their recent game against rivals Celtic where they lost 2-1.

Alfredo Morelos has played an incredible 42 games in all competitions, whilst scoring 19 goals and registering eight assists for his side.

With the vast amount of games that Morelos has played for Rangers this season, Richard Foster spoke on the PLZ Soccer YouTube channel and claimed that his injury may have been caused by burnout.

(3;18) “ He’s a huge loss to Rangers, I think the way he’s been playing he leads the line so well, his performances in Europe have been magnificent, his goal record in the European games is fantastic as well, I think it’s just overplaying, there’s games where he could have missed, there’s domestic games he could have missed,” Foster said.

TIF Thoughts on Richard Foster’s comments…

Alfredo Morelos has been a mainstay in the Rangers side over the past five seasons, having made 224 appearances across this period, and it has taken its toll as the Colombian forward who will miss the remainder of the season due to a thigh injury.

It will be a huge loss for Giovanni van Bronckhorst to miss his star striker for the rest of the season with his influence in the final third. The 18 goal contributions in the league have helped him get named in seven-team of the weeks and averages 4.3 shots per game, as per Sofascore.

Of course, it’s easy to put his injury down to overuse but had he not suffered an injury then no one would be saying anything about how many games he’s played this season.
