Tata Martino and players spoke with reporters Friday morning to give us some further insight into the status of certain players for Saturday’s bout against Orlando City. There aren’t a whole lot of particularly new updates.
Chris McCann: Martino announced that the Irishman is still unavailable for Saturday after missing the last five matches due to a hamstring injury. Look for Ambrose to start against his former team on Saturday with Garza and McCann still out.
Darlington Nagbe: The club announced earlier in the week that the midfielder is out 2-3 months after suffering an adductor injury. Conveniently, the club also announced a new midfield signing in Eric Remedi, who can immediately join the team for training but cannot play in a match until the transfer window opens on July 10. Until then, look for Julian Gressel to step into the midfield while Tito Villalba gets a few well deserved starts on the right wing.
