The Los Angeles Galaxy will be without the services of goalkeeper Josh Saunders "indefinitely" as the goalkeeper is in the league's Substance Abuse and Behavioral Health program according to a club release on Sunday.
Saunders has missed the Galaxy's last four matches and the club release follows a Los Angeles Times report earlier in the month that stated that Saunders would be in the league's substance abuse treatment program.
The club's official statement on the 31-year-old goalkeeper is as follows:
“Josh Saunders is currently in the league's Substance Abuse and Behavioral Health program and will remain unavailable for the club indefinitely. That program is administered by medical professionals appointed jointly by the league and the Players Union. Those medical professionals independently evaluate, treat, and determine the length of time that he will be in the program. The team does not control it.”
