Gonzalo Veron’s injury situation is getting curiouser and curiouser.
The Red Bulls forward has flown to his native Argentina to visit a doctor about his hamstring injury.
“We’re hopeful that he can get back soon,” Red Bulls head coach Jesse Marsch said.
Veron suffered his latest injury during the second leg of the CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinals vs. Vancouver Whitecaps FC.
The Argentine player was expected to start training with the Major League Soccer team last week.
Plagued by injuries last year, Veron has made some progress, feeling stronger in some areas, buit still feeling pain elsewhere, Marsch said.
“We’re trying to get to the bottom of what his injury is,” he said.
