    ALAJUELA, Costa Rica -- Alajuelense will be without the services of Luis Miguel Valle for the next five weeks, the club announced Thursday.

    The 25-year-old midfielder suffered a dislocated elbow during the Manudos’ Copa Popular match at Guanacasteca a day earlier.  He underwent x-rays and other tests to determine the injury’s extent.

    As a result, Valle will miss the opening weeks of the 2014 Invierno season and, at least, the first matchday of the 2014/15 CONCACAF Champions League (CCL).  Alajuelense is scheduled to kick-off its fifth appearance in the competition at defending champion Cruz Azul on August 5.

    Valle, who has been with the Costa Rican power since 2009, has scored two career CCL goals and was a member of Costa Rica’s 2013 UNCAF Copa Centroamericana championship-winning side.
