Inter Miami midfielder Federico Redondo out with knee injury

Federico Redondo - Inter Miami

Inter Miami CF midfielder Federico Redondo is expected to miss approximately two months after suffering a left LCL (knee) injury, the club announced Thursday.

Redondo, 21, joined Inter Miami in late February from Argentine side Argentinos Juniors. He has one assist in four matches (all starts) across all competitions.

Redondo is one of Inter Miami's three U22 Initiative players, acquired after fellow Argentine youth international Facundo Farías moved to the Season-Ending Injury List. Farías in preseason camp.

While Redondo is sidelined through potentially late May, midfielder Benjamin Cremaschi (sports hernia) recently returned to training. Redondo will certainly be missed, though, looking incredibly promising in a box-to-box role. 

During Redondo's recovery, Inter Miami are expected to lean upon Sergio Busquets, Diego Gómez and Julian Gressel as key midfielders. Cremaschi and fellow homegrown David Ruiz are hugely important as well.
