LOS ANGELES — Canadian international midfielder Mark-Anthony Kaye has undergone successful surgery to repair a fractured ankle.
Los Angeles FC, in a release Wednesday, says the 23-year-old from Toronto is expected to be out four to six months. The surgery was performed Monday by Rachel Triche, a California surgeon whose clients have included Guns N’ Roses lead singer Axl Rose and Los Angeles midfielder Sebastian Lletget.
Kaye, who was in the midst of a breakthrough rookie season in Major League Soccer, was injured July 26 in LAFC’s 2-2 tie against the Galaxy on July 26 at Banc of California Stadium. Prior to the injury, Kaye had two goals and five assists in 20 regular-season matches.
"The first step to recovery has commenced and I’m excited to start this journey," Kaye said via social media.
