Real Salt Lake News Release

HERRIMAN, Utah - Rookie Real Salt Lake DF Kevin Bonilla underwent surgery today to repair injuries in his left knee sustained in a Feb. 14 preseason match against Toronto FC in Santa Barbara.

In updates provided by RSL Senior Director of Athlete Health & Performance Theron Enns, Bonilla is expected to miss the remainder of the 2024 Major League Soccer season. The former Univ. of Portland and eligible Honduran international right back was selected in the first round (18th overall) by RSL in the 2024 MLS SuperDraft in December.

"Today's surgery to repair the ACL and LCL ligaments in Kevin's left knee was performed by the Club's Orthopedic surgeon, Dr. C. Dain Allred from Intermountain Health, who performed the procedure at the Intermountain Utah Valley Hospital in Provo," said Enns. "Kevin will work closely with the RSL Medical Staff beginning this week to rehabilitate these injuries."

Additional updates on Bonilla's status will be provided throughout the year, as appropriate.
