New York Red Bulls head coach Jesse Marsch provided an update on Damien Perrinelle, Muhamed Keita and Aurelien Collin following training on Monday.
According to Marsch, Keita began training with the team during their recent road trip and is now practicing without restrictions.
“He’s trained in full, so that’s good,” Marsch said. “We worked a lot of fitness into last week when we were traveling so he looked good, he looked fit. He looks like he’ll be ready to go here.”
Perrinelle, who picked up a knock in the U.S. Open Cup match against FC Cincinnati, is currently training with limitations, but is expected to be ready for Friday.
“Damien’s fine,” Marsch said. “He had an abductor [injury]. He trained. Not full in today, but as a neutral so he should be available.”
As for Collin, Marsch is hopeful the defender won’t be ruled out for weeks and said he could feature in training on Tuesday.
“Aurelien was getting an MRI this morning, so we’re hopeful that he can train tomorrow,” Marsch said. We’ll see. Plantar Fasciitis…they’re just doing a precautionary MRI...as of right now, I’m told he’s training tomorrow so we’ll see how he feels. But that’s what I’m told.
