Hannover captain Cherundolo has knee surgery
Hannover captain Steve Cherundolo has undergone arthroscopic
surgery on his left knee.
Coach Mirko Slomka said Thursday the American defender, who
turns 34 on Feb. 19, had the operation a day earlier. Slomka did
not give a projection for the right back’s return.
Cherundolo has played 380 matches for Hannover, including 280 in
the Bundesliga. He has 15 appearances this season but none since
leaving a German Cup match against Borussia Dortmund on Dec. 19 in
the 66th minute.
Cherundolo missed the United States’ 2-1 loss at Honduras in
World Cup qualifier on Wednesday and was replaced in the starting
lineup by Nuremberg’s Timmy Chandler.
