Ahead of the club's finale regular season home match where they will host FC Cincinnati on Sunday night, Philadelphia Union Head Coach Jim Curtin provided an update on the status of the squad.
“Sergio hurt his other quad so it is unrelated to the last injury but at the very end of the game on a pass that he made. He had a MRI and it comes back similar to the other quad that he tore. He will most likely miss the weekend but I don't know how long or how serious it is. It is the same and difficult story that every time we get him going, we lose him. It's difficult but injuries are part of the game and it gives someone the opportunity to step up.”
“Cory was out [at training] today and trained fully which was good. Hopefully he'll be available to help us out on the weekend.”
"He did train today in the first part of things but I don't want to get the fans excited because he has some work to do to crack into the team. He makes the game look simple and I want him to push as hard as possible to help this team. Whether it is at the very end of the season at New York City or in the playoffs, there is still a three week window that if we qualify for the playoffs for him to return. I want it to end with him on the field, that's the easiest way to put it. He's working toward that very hard and hopefully it can happen."
