Earlier this month Florian Valot suffered a torn ACL during training. It was announced it would lead to surgery and physical therapy effectively ending his season.
Today he underwent surgery successfully as reported on his Instagram account below.
OTW !!! Surgery went well ✔️, road to recovery starts today ! Once again thank you all for your continued support and love messages throughout this journey, you guys make it easier ! 🙏🏼 @newyorkredbulls I will come back stronger than ever #nyisred #rbny #movingforward #rehab #staypositive #staystrong #smile #behappy #firstsurgery #newyork
Valot had the makings of a break out season, 3 goals and 5 assists to start before the halfway mark. His replacement for the year doesn’t seem to be set in stone yet, as the Summer Transfer Window opened and a few players are rumored to join the Red Bulls.
Valot worked as a color commentator last week on the New York Red Bulls II home game against the Richmond Kickers. He may continue to do that for the rest of the USL season.
All of us at Red Bulls News Network hope that Valot has a speedy recovery and wish him well.
