HANNOVER OPTIMISTIC ON CHERUNDOLO
RECAPS
EXTRA TIME
BRIAN SCIARETTA - Tuesday, August 20, 2013
US national team right back Steve Cherundolo underwent his third knee surgery of 2013 today but he is expected to be back soon.

Cherundolo, 34, has been plagued with knee problems for most of this year and has not played for the U.S team since last October. His first surgery was an arthroscopic procedure in February. He later returned for the final few games of the 2012/13 Bundesliga season but underwent a second procedure in June.

The latest procedure completed today was to remove scar tissue. Although Hannover would not give a definitive timeline for his return, the club expects it to be sooner than later.

"The very short operation was today," Hannover press officer Alex Jacob told YA on Tuesday. "The doctor cut a small scar tissue. Stevie will be back soon."

Cherundolo is Hannover 96's all-time appearance leader in the Bundesliga having played in his 300th game last year. The one-club defender from the University of Portland was named the team's captain in 2010.

Hope you are healing well Steve!

Look forward to seeing you back on the pitch when you are ready.

All the best.

A big question for U.S. fans heading into the World Cup is surely on Jozy Altidore and just what is plaguing the young striker at Sunderland.
