Pomykal faces an anticipated six-month recovery period after the procedure was performed by Dr. John Christoforetti at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital.
Pomykal, 20, was coming off a breakout season in which he was named a 2019 MLS All-Star. But he’s only appeared in five matches (one start) in 2020, scoring once across that stretch.
While it’s been a stop-and-start year for Pomykal, he’s viewed as one of the top midfield prospects in MLS. He has three goals and five assists in 38 appearances, starred at the 2019 FIFA U-20 World Cup and has one senior squad cap (September 2019 friendly against Uruguay).
