HARRISON, N.J. — A couple of injured Red Bulls are expected to return to training in the coming week.
Midfielder-forward Gonzalo Veron is scheduled to be back at practice at the team’s training facility in Hanover, N.J. Monday while midfielder Mike Grella could be working out with the team by the end of the week.
Veron has been sidelined with a hamstring injury he suffered in the second leg of the CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinals March 2.
He recently returned from his native Argentina to have doctors look at his knee.
Grella has been sidelined with a knee injury since March 25, when the MLS club announced he would be out four to five weeks.
“With everything else, we’re growing into the season,” coach Jesse Marsch said after the 2-0 win over D.C. United at Red Bull Arena Saturday night. “And now that we know we’re going to get healthier in the next week or so, I think it sets us up really to now really start to push and gain momentum within the season.”
