Don’t count on Red Bulls midfielders Vincent Bezecourt and Ben Mines for the rest of the Major League Soccer season.
They will miss the remainder of the campaign after undergoing surgery this week.
Bezecourt had surgery on his right MCL Wednesday.
Mines had surgery to repair a broken left clavicle Thursday.
Both procedures were performed by team doctors at the Hospital for Special Surgery.
The 25-year-old Bezecourt was signed to an MLS contract last August after spending a year and a half with Red Bull II. The French midfielder recorded a goal against New York City FC in the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup and added two assists in 10 games across all competitions this season.
Mines, 18, signed as a Homegrown Player prior to this season after coming through the Red Bulls Academy system. The Ridgefield, Conn. native scored in his MLS debut March 11. He made 14 appearances for NYRB II this season.
