Scratch midfielder Florian Valot for the rest of the Red Bulls season.
Valot suffered an ACL tear in his left knee during training on Thursday at the Red Bulls Training Facility in East Hanover, N.J., the club announced Sunday.
“This might be one of the worst and saddest day in my life,” Valot said on Twitter. “This amazing season ended too early for me when on Thursday I torn my ACL. I have no words to describe how I feel right now.”
Valot will undergo surgery in the coming weeks.
The French midfielder recorded three goals and five assists in 14 games this season after earning promotion from Red Bull II in December.
He joined NYRB II in June 2016 after graduating from Rider University.
