Federico Higuain, who recently became the all time assists leader for Columbus Crew SC, will miss the remainder of the 2019 season after undergoing anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction surgery. The injury came in the Crew’s last match against the Colorado Rapids. It was clear that Higuain had suffered an injury, and he subbed out of the match in the 67th minute for Patrick Mullins. Higuain had an assist in the game to add to his team record.
At 34, this injury could end Higuain’s career in Columbus. Having been with the team since 2012, Higuain initially announced that 2018 would be his final season before changing his mind and coming back. His current contract with the Crew ends this season.
