defeated Necaxa in the first matchday of the Liga MX.

In a post-match interview after his side’s 3-0 victory, Lozano spoke about his return from injury.

"I want to dedicate this to the people who were very malicious towards me, who when they saw me down they wanted me to continue like this,"

he said.

"That motivated me to continue working to return to the field, and today I showed that I won a complicated battle again."

He added:

"It was like a debut for me. I had a complicated year where I suffered a lot. I went from taking the risk of not being able to play football again to being on the field, and that's an incredible feeling."

Lozano joined Santos Laguna from America in 2018.  The 27-year-old has featured in 120 matches for the Liga MX club, scoring 21 goals and providing 26 assists.
