Chivas USA's Marky Delgado undergoes season-ending knee surgery for second year in a row

Bad luck or unfortunate trend for the youngster?

Chivas USA midfielder Marco Delgado is out for the remainder of the season following successful knee surgery on a torn lateral meniscus.

It is depressing news for the 19-year-old as the Homegrown player had featured 20 times this season with 12 of them being starts.

The young midfielder had not featured since playing the full 90 in the defeat to the Columbus Crew on September 7th.

Delgado had two goals and one assist so far this campaign for the Goats. The real worry here is that Delgado had a season ending knee injury last year as well, also on a torn meniscus and two surgeries at such a young age, albeit minor as far as these go, would not be an ideal situation for any player.

Reports are that the knee operation will have him off the field for 4 to 6 weeks which will see him out for the remainder of the season.

With the uncertain future looming ahead for CUSA it is anyone's guess to where Delgado will be playing when he returns from injury.
