The Philadelphia Union have revealed the extent of the injury C.J. Sapong picked up in the season opener.
The club announced on Wednesday that Sapong suffered a concussion and a fractured cheekbone during the first half of the Union’s game against Colorado Rapids on Saturday. The forward is now due to see a specialist, where the length of his anticipated time on the sidelines will be determined.
The injury occurred late in the first half, with Christian Maidana coming on to replace Sapong after halftime.
The 26-year-old forward was acquired by the Union from Sporting Kansas City in exchange for the 10th pick in the 2015 MLS Draft.
What do you think of the news? How will the Union fare without Sapong?
