Houston Dynamo will have to find a way to stay in the top three of Western Conference without one of their most experience player in wingback/winger DaMarcus Beasley. The team announced that Beasley underwent arthroscopic knee surgery and he is expected to miss four to six weeks recovering.

This is definitely not good news for Dynamo since Beasley represents a key part in team’s starting lineup despite his advanced age. The 36-year-old played four games in 2019 CONCACAF Champions League and already managed to score one goal. He is yet to make a debut in MLS this season.

DaMarcus Beasley joined Dynamo in 2014 and since then played 112 matches in which he provided three goals and four assists. During his five years in Houston, he earned two MLS All-Star appearances while helping his team win Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup last year.

Beasley started his professional career in MLS, playing for Chicago Fire between 2000 and 2004, before heading overseas. In Europe he played for several notable clubs including PSV and Manchester City. 

He resigned with Dynamo in 2019, inking a one-year deal, and this season will be his 20th as a professional soccer player.
