Timmy Chandler nearing return from injury

A long injury layoff for U.S. Men’s National Team right back Timothy Chandler could end before the holidays.

The Eintracht Frankfurt player could return to the side ahead of the Bundesliga’s winter break according to manager Niko Kovac.

“Timmy can still play before the winter,” Kovac said.

“I’m glad he played well until his injury, and Marius Wolf did well in that position, but with two such players on one page, the combination looks even better. ” Kovac said.

The German-American full back has not played for the German side since Oct. 21.

Before suffering his knee injury, Chandler played nine matches for Eintracht Frankfurt, who sit ninth in the Bundesliga table.


  1. He had a MOTM performance against Hamburg. Sent in two assists, and had a wicked shot palmed away by the keeper late in the game. Just a great game for his return.

    • Right, because he played so badly in that nightmarish hex campaign that led to the worst American soccer disaster ever. Oh wait, he was never called in and was instead busy being one of the best fullbacks in the Bundesliga.
