Sebastian Lletget returns to training after six-month absence

The LA Galaxy received some good news on Tuesday, as Sebastian Lletget returned to training.

The midfielder stepped onto a field for the first time after sustaining a fracture in his foot earlier this year. The injury, which required surgery, occurred just minutes after he scored his first international goal in only his third appearance for the U.S. Men’s National Team.

The injury kept him off the pitch for six months, meaning that he only featured three times for the Galaxy this season, all in March.

It is currently unclear whether or not Lletget will be healthy enough to feature in any of the Galaxy’s remaining seven regular season matches as they attempt to make a miracle push towards playoffs. Regardless, the news certainly comes as a positive to the five-time MLS Cup champions, who have struggled with injuries throughout the season and currently sit ninth in the Western Conference.


  1. Thanks for the info since I had been wondering and the LA Times hasn’t provided any news on his progress.As i’ve pointed out before, Nagbe is rather one-dimensional and I think Lletget potentially could be better at providing assists and goals. Hope he gets fully recovered. However, as we have seen with Zardes, even after he is physically healed, it takes time to get back one’s form. Maybe by January camp he’ll be able to contribute and possibly be ready for Moscow, depending on his develo0pment. While he looked good, it was only in friendlies and he hasn’t even played in a qualifier yet, so it remains to be seen what he can contribute at a higher level of play.
