Keaton Parks Undergoes Surgery for Lower Leg Blood Clot
New York, N.Y. - New York City Football Club today announced that Midfielder Keaton Parks will undergo surgery to remove a blood clot from his popliteal artery in his lower right leg.
Keaton, who underwent the same procedure last November, will begin rehab immediately with Montefiore Hospital and Club medical staff.
This season Keaton has played in 22 games across three different competitions, logging 1,267 minutes and contributing with two goals and one assist. The Texas native was named Etihad Player of the Month in May for his fine form at the beginning of the season.
Sporting Director, David Lee, said: "First and foremost, Keaton's health is our priority and on behalf of everyone at the Club, I'd like to wish him all the best for the surgery and his recovery. We're obviously extremely disappointed to lose a player of his quality, he's a fantastic player and very important to the way we play. As we experienced last season, building a deep squad is vital to withstand these types of situations and so naturally, this will provide opportunities for other players.
"We have an incredible medical staff here and Keaton will receive the best possible treatment during his recovery. We do not yet have a specific timeline on when he will be available and will be guided by his progression through his rehab, but we are confident he will make a full recovery and are looking forward to having him back with the group."
