A season of coaching changes, roster turnover, and a less-than-spectacular 1-2 start, just became more hectic, as the Los Angeles Galaxy learned that midfielder Sebastian Lletget will be sidelined for the next 4-6 months due to injury.
After additional tests this week, it was determined that Lletget sustained a Lisfranc injury during the U.S. Men’s National Team World Cup Qualifier against Honduras Friday, March 24, at Avaya Stadium in San Jose, Calif.
It was originally thought that the injury was a left foot strain, however, the medical team of U.S. Soccer and LA Galaxy, headed by foot and ankle specialist Dr. Rachel Triche, determined that Lletget will require surgery next week when the swelling comes down.
The LA Galaxy will face Vancouver Whitecaps FC on the road at BC Place this Saturday, April 1, at 7 p.m. PT live on Spectrum SportsNet and Spectrum Deportes.
