Ahead of the club's visit to New York City FC, Philadelphia Union Head Coach Jim Curtin provided an update on the status of the squad.
“Stu joined training today but just partial so not 100% yet but getting closer. At the worst he misses this game but after that I think he'll be fine."
“Mikael has trained off to the side a little bit but it will be tight for the weekend, obviously we have to be smart with things. He wanted to go last week but we found out at noon that the quad had tightened up to a point where we didn't want to risk it. He lost a little bit of fitness because of the visa issue but he worked very, very hard to get up to speed and maybe I pushed him a little too hard in training so we had a little bit of a setback. I cannot wait to get him up and going because he is going to be a very good player and a fan favorite. We will see but maybe it is for 15 minutes this weekend or maybe we hold off but it is still to be determined."
