It seems like Philadelphia Union’s midfielder Warren Creavalle just can’t catch a break from injuries in recent time. After nursing a hamstring injury in May, Creavalle now suffered a broken foot. The injury will put him out of action for around four weeks.

The news was confirmed by Union’s manager Jim Curtin, who revealed that Creavalle suffered the injury during Guyana national team practice ahead of CONCACAF Gold Cup.

“It is really difficult for him because he was really excited about the competition,” – said Curtin. “An unlucky break. Fortunately, the diagnosis is fairly good.”

Creavalle played a total of six games in MLS with Union this season but didn’t manage to get himself on the score sheet.

Warren Creavalle started his professional career with Houston Dynamo, who took him 37th overall in the 2012 MLS SuperDraft. After spending two and a half years in Houston, he was traded to Toronto FC. Creavalle played 24 games with Toronto and scored two goals before Philadelphia acquired him for a second-round pick in 2016 MLS SuperDraft.

Creavalle played a total of 146 matches in MLS so far, contributing five goals and six assists.
