The USMNT was hit with some sad news on Friday as PSV announced officially that midfielder Richy Ledezma will miss the remainder of the 2020-21 season with a torn ACL.
The worst possible news...— PSV (@PSV) December 11, 2020
Het seizoen van @richydezma zit erop. De Amerikaan heeft de voorste kruisband van zijn rechterknie gescheurd en komt dit seizoen niet meer in actie.
We're all wishing you a speedy recovery, Richy ❤️
This is a devastating blow for the burgeoning U.S. international who had just broken into the PSV first-team this season. In addition to becoming a regular in the Eredivisie, the 20-year-old was handed his USMNT debut by Gregg Berhalter in November, where he notched two assists.
Ledezma has appeared three times for PSV this season. He went down with the knee injury on Thursday during his first-ever start for the club during their Europa League victory. Manager Roger Schmidt dedicated the team’s win to the Mexican-American afterwards.
The future is still extremely bright for Ledezma both for club and country. This injury is just a very unfortunate speed bump on his journey. We wish him nothing but luck in his recovery.
Update: Richy left this message on his Instagram following the news:
