Chivas G Michel will miss Mexican season with broken forearm

July 20, 2008

MEXICO CITY -- Chivas goalkeeper Luis Michel broke his left forearm during a Superliga game and will miss the 2008 Mexican Apertura league season.

Michel was injured Saturday night when he went for a rebound and was hit by Gabriel Pereyra in the 89th minute against Atlante in San Jose, Calif. Team doctor Narciso Lopez confirmed the injury Sunday.

Sergio Rodriguez and Liborio Sanchez are the only goalkeepers left on the roster, and both have yet to debut in the first division. Chivas probably will explore the possibility of acquiring another goalie.
