first_imgThe side regretted that this series of injuries have prevented him from competing and helping his team, which is undoubtedly his worst streak and an ordeal.

Adding that: “I came to Villarreal to recover my level and the injuries have not allowed me to. I had a bad time, since in my career I have not had so many injuries. Therefore, I have been through bad times, since it has been a long time and in my career I had only had injuries for days and not this. The people of the club have helped me a lot and they have taken the subject from iron, although it has not been easy. It cost me, since the expectations were high and I could not help and be with the team, “he said.Now, Moreno is back. After playing in Wanda and feeling good, he hopes to be on the team and his ordeal ends. A return he admits makes him: “Happy and euphoric. Since the other day I was able to play and it was something that made me very happy, I felt elated and eager to play and help the team,” he said. Almost 20 weeks off.

The players are doing their job and trying to entertain people, I don’t understand the mentality of any supporter who wants to throw things at people. I have seen plenty of it at the weekend as well and it’s very unsavoury and needs to be stopped.“If a Hibs fan has thrown anything at the goalkeeper, then he should be punished and banned. We don’t condone any of that behaviour at all, it’s disgraceful.”“Hopefully there will be punishment for both supporters if the authorities can pick them out, and like I said, I would like to meet that person, in person.”Both teams were missing players due to an array of injuries, but Hearts started the game on the front foot with Olly Lee forcing a save from distance and Dikamona coming close from an ambitious overhead kick.But Darren McGregor missed a better chance at the other end when he could not turn a free header on target from a deep corner.Stevie Mallan then took centre stage with a series of wonderful long-range efforts.
