Green out through December with knee injury

Julian Green is set to miss the next month of matches for Greuther Furth.

The club announced Friday that Green suffered a partially ruptured knee ligament over the international break and will be out at least until the international break. Green, 24, has been one of the team’s top performers this campaign, scoring four goals in 13 league appearances.

The U.S. Men’s National Team product has 10 league goals and four assists in three seasons with Furth, with 2019-20 being his best campaign so far.

Green has fought to get back into the USMNT fold under first-year head coach Gregg Berhalter, but has yet to receive a call from the 43-year-old. Despite helping Furth to a current eighth place spot in the 2. Bundesliga, Green will now hope for a speedy recovery.

Furth hosts Nuremberg on Sunday in their first match back from the international break, before having four additional league fixtures from Dec. 1st-21st. Following their showdown with Erzgebirge Aue on the 21st, the club will enter the winter break which will see them out of action until Jan. 28th, 2020.


  1. Another injury, another obstacle, speedy recovery! I don’t think it matters, because even when healthy, GB rates Roldan and McKennie as 10s over Green.

      • It wouldn’t surprise me if like Nagbe, Green realizes his “brand” benefits from not playing for USMNT and is turning down call ups. The narrative when he plays is “what a bust” when he doesn’t play its “what a snub”. Perhaps Berhalter just doesn’t like that he hasn’t played much defense in the past or that he’s a shoot first player. The only reason we know about Nagbe is because he told everyone. Berhalter had totally covered for him.
