LA Galaxy captain Robbie Keane underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee Thursday. The Irishman is expected to miss four to six weeks.
Despite news of another injury to another Galaxy designated player, Keane seemed to be in good spirits after the operation. He posted a photo on his Instagram account saying he was hopeful for a “speedy recovery” and vowing to come back “stronger” soon.
The Galaxy have been hit hard with injuries in the early going of the season. Along with Keane, Giovani dos Santos (left quad injury), Steven Gerrard (left calf) and goalkeeper Dan Kennedy (groin) are all dealing with injuries.
The Galaxy, without DP’s Keane and Gerrard, will take on the Whitecaps Saturday in Vancouver at BC Place, where Didier Drogba recently refused to play due to concerns over the artificial turf. The club is in third place of the Western Conference standings with six points.
