Minnesota United's Kevin Molino to miss remainder of 2018 season

Postado Março 13, 2018

Minnesota United midfielder Kevin Molino is expected to miss the rest of the MLS campaign after suffering a torn ACL, the MLS club announced Monday.

The Trinidad & Tobago worldwide tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee during a 2-1 away win against his former club Orlando City on Saturday. The Trinidad and Tobago worldwide, who has 19 goals from 43 starts for the Soca Warriors, is expected to undergo surgery in the coming weeks.

The Minnesota United midfielder will undergo surgery to fix a torn ACL of his left knee and is expected to miss the rest of the 2018 season.

Molino tore the ACL in his right knee in 2015.

Minnesota will surely struggle to replace Molino's production and ability in the final third, but United coach Adrian Heath said his biggest concerns are for the player he first signed out of Trinidad and Tobago when coaching Orlando City in the USL in 2011.

Molino, 27, had two goals and one assist through 140 minutes this season before going down with the injury in his first trip back to Orlando since being traded to Minnesota ahead of the 2017 season.

Molino was likely to feature for Trinidad and Tobago in friendlies away to Guadeloupe and Martinique later this month.
