A rocky start to the season just got a little rockier for Geoff Cameron at Stoke City. He has hernia injury requiring surgery, but it’s not exactly clear when the U.S. Men’s National Team defender will be back in action. This comes after Cameron seemingly lost his Premier League position to summer arrival Phil Bardsley.
Meanwhile, former Fulham manager and Manchester United assistant Rene Meulensteen could be the next European manager to come stateside. Philadelphia Union CEO Nick Sakiewicz admitted Meulensteen was in the running for open coaching job, but a decision is not expected soon.
And it seems Luis Suarez can never be held down too long. FIFA has cleared him to make his Barcelona debut in the Oct. 25 El Clasico against Real Madrid. He had the original terms of his ban reduced after he was caught biting a player during a match for the third time at this summer’s World Cup.
