Steve Cherundolo looks to be down on his luck this summer.
Reports in Germany state that Cherundolo has suffered a major setback in his recovery from another left knee injury this summer, forcing him to have surgery for the second time in eight weeks. The report states that the Hannover captain has been ruled out indefinitely.
Hannover are preparing to bring in reinforcements at right back, as the club have until August 31 to acquire a new player via transfer. Cherundolo last played for Hannover on May 18 in a 3-0 victory over Fortuna Dusseldorf, though he missed a large chunk of the spring due to the first knee surgery of the three he’s received.
The U.S. Men’s National Team veteran hasn’t featured for the squad since October 2012 due to the injuries, and many hoped that he would be able to return for the upcoming September World Cup qualifiers at Costa Rica and against Mexico. However, the news means that Cherundolo will certainly miss the next qualifiers and puts his participation in the October qualifiers into questions as well.
What do you think of this report? Are you frustrated with all injuries to Cherundolo? Expecting to see him don a USMNT jersey again?
