Kelly Youga will be out for the rest of the season. He is suffering from a chondral defect of the knee. It was a similar problem that kept American signing Cory Gibbs sidelined. Youga is expected to be out of action for 18 months in total.
Youga was developing into a good player. He got forward well in attack. If he had been available throughout last season, there might have been a different outcome. When he does return, it will take him a while to get back to his former standard.
Cory Gibbs is now playing for the New England Revolution, having played for the Colorado Rapids, and is highly rated.
