We might have to wait a little longer to see the return of Steve Cherundolo at Hannover.
According to reports out of Germany, Cherundolo has trained individually for each of the past two days after seemingly suffering a setback in his recovery from the third knee surgery he has had in the past calendar year. The veteran fullback is reportedly feeling discomfort in his left knee again and that makes it unlikely that he dresses, much less plays, for Hannover in their Sunday tilt against Werder Bremen.
The 34-year-old Cherundolo, who recently said he would like to be with the U.S. Men’s National Team for the World Cup next summer, had recently resumed practicing with the German club after undergoing the latest procedure on one of his knees in August.
Cherundolo has not played in a competitive game at any level since a 3-0 victory over Fortuna Dusseldorf in Hannover’s 2012-13 season finale on May 18.
What do you make of this news? Starting to think Cherundolo’s chances of reaching Brazil are slim? Think we see the veteran fullback play again before the end of the year?
