Josh Saunders injured his ACL in Real Salt Lake’s match against FC Dallas on July 13th.
Real Salt Lake have announced that goalkeeper Josh Saunders will miss the rest of the MLS season after having surgery on his anterior cruciate ligament.
The ‘keeper picked up the knee injury colliding with a player whilst diving to save a shot in the first half of RSL’s match against FC Dallas on July 13th of this year. Surgery will rule Saunders out for six months.
The news will resonate hard with RSL fans, who see their team currently perched atop the Western Conference.
The team have the third best defensive record in their division, in no small part thanks to Saunders’ heroics. The goalkeeper was traded away following back-to-back MLS Cup wins in 2011 and 2012 with the LA Galaxy and has continued to prove his worth at his new home in Salt Lake City.
