Stuart Holden will find out more about his latest setback this week.
While playing with the Bolton Wanderers reserves on Monday, the American midfielder was forced off just 23 minutes into his comeback from a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Though he was able to walk off under his own power, Holden is set to travel to the U.S. to undergo a scan on his re-injured knee to see the extent of the damage, according to Bolton. Holden’s scan will be done by the surgeon who operated on him last July.
The news of Holden’s injury was heartbreaking for fans and teammates alike, with well wishes pouring in from around the globe on Twitter and other forms of social media. Holden had been rehabbing a torn right ACL suffered in the Gold Cup final last July when the U.S. Men’s National Team defeated Panama.
What do you think of this news? Holding out hope that it’s not so bad? Think he can return healthy for the start of the next Bolton season?
