The last few weeks have been rough on Jonathan Bornstein.

Just days after Bornstein returned to the squad following the passing of his father, Mexican club Querétaro announced that the American left back is set to miss at least two months of action after undergoing foot surgery.

“Jonathan was hurt last Friday in training, and he suffered an injury to his fifth metatarsal,” Querétaro head of press Alejandro Esponda said Wednesday. “He was operated on last Saturday, and he’ll be out for at least two and a half months.”

The injury is set to keep Bornstein out for the remainder of the 2014 Apertura season. Currently on-loan with Queretaro from Tigres, Bornstein has appeared in just two Copa MX games this season.

Bornstein has made 38 appearances for the U.S. Men’s National Team, most recently in 2011.

What do you think of Bornstein’s injury? Where should the left back go from here?

Share your thoughts below.


  1. Did this guy hurt his foot carrying luggage for fellow teammates? Weekly, I see him on the “DNP” list and it still amuses me he even collects a paycheck.

    Seeing him never return to MLS would be too soon.

  2. I know we like to glorify and criticize professional athletes, but we sometimes forget that they are humans with lives of their own just like us.

    Thoughts and prayers for Mr. Bornstein and his family after the passing of his father.

    • Well said. Even I forget sometimes that they are humans. Wish he would come back home though. Obviously isn’t working for him in Mexico..

      • I guess it just depends on “working” means. He’s collecting a bigger paycheck than he would in MLS, and doesn’t have to deal with a bunch of people (fans) who constantly attack him because he wasn’t our savior at left back.

        For a lot of people, that’s a decent trade-off for not seeing much PT

      • He was just fine in there 2 World Cup matched he played. People overlook that, but it’s kind of a big deal.

      • Really? F this dude. If Jozy, Kljestan and co. can be criticited for spuring MLS to fight out for a spot in Europe, then why should Bornstein (who was on Klinsmann’s short list of LBs at the begining of the 2014 cycle) be thrown a bone for taking easy Money in Mexico when he could actually have been playing these past three years in MLS as a lynchpin on a team.

        Boo this man!

  3. Who’d think he’d be as much news as Heath Pearce’s twitter account is by now. Cover some stories that matter for god sakes
