Red Bulls Lose Midfielder

New York Red Bulls midfielder Florian Valot suffered an ACL tear in his right knee during last weekend's match against the San Jose Earthquakes.

Valot will undergo surgery in the coming weeks with team doctors at the Hospital for Special Surgery. A timetable for return will be established after surgery.

Valot, 26, missed the second half of the 2018 season with an ACL tear in the left knee.

More than likely, Valot who has been valuable coming onto the field from the bench and also as a stop-starter, will be out for the 2019 season. Valot was taken down by a tackle from the back in the 35th minute of the match.
