Gonzalo Veron is playing the waiting game once again (Michael Lewis/FrontRowSoccer)
The often-injured Gonzalo Veron is questionable for Sunday’s game at the Seattle Sounders.
Red Bulls head coach Jesse Marsch said that the Argentine winger had his “best day” of training Wednesday after he suffered a hamstring injury eight minutes into the 2-0 second leg loss to the Vancouver Whitecaps in the CONCACAF Champions Leaguye.
Since then Veron has missed the team’s first two games of the Major League Soccer season.
“We’re hopeful now that we can progress pretty quickly, so not sure if he’ll be available for the weekend, especially with it being turf,” Marsch told www.NewYorkRedBulls.com. “But hopefully we’ll be able to progress quickly from here and get him going.”
A pulled hamstring denied Veron an opportunity to start the 2016 on the right foot with the Red Bulls after an impressive preseason and he never truly got untracked.
Veron finished with three goals in six starts and 23 games over 631 minutes last season.
