Porto forward Alberto Bueno rejoined his Portuguese football club after a two-month absence due to a left foot injury. He has been included for their clash against Belenenses in the 24th round of Primeira Liga.

Spain's Bueno will show up for the first time under the command of Portuguese coach Jose Peseiro, who has succeeded sacked manager Julen Lopetegui since mid-January, reports Efe.

The last match played by the 27-year-old player with Porto was against Academica on 20 December 2016, when he left the pitch after sustaining a left foot injury.

Bueno moved from Rayo Vallecano to Porto in the beginning of this season but failed to gain the confidence of Lopetegui and played only seven matches, scoring just two goals.

Porto are currently third in Primeira Liga standings with 52 points, six behind leaders Sporting Lisbon.
