LOS ANGELES — LA Galaxy designated player Romain Alessandrini underwent a successful surgery to address a meniscus root injury, the club announced Friday. His surgery was performed at the Kerlan-Jobe Institute at Cedars-Sinai in Santa Monica, Calif. 

Alessandrini sustained the injury during the Galaxy’s April 13th match against the Philadelphia Union, leaving the match in just the 16th minute. This is Alessandrini’s third knee surgery, according to a post on his Instagram account. 

“Obviously, everybody knows what Romain means to our club,” Galaxy general manager Dennis te Kloese said after training Friday. “He is, first of all, a good guy as part of the team, and I’m lucky so far this season. To begin, I think these things happen, they are incidents and they take nothing away from how we see him. We need to be very, very supportive in helping him with his rehab so that we can reintegrate him for this season still and take part in the end of the season.”

Te Kloese went on to explain that Alessandrini is not a candidate for the season-ending injury list because he is expected to return at the end of the season.
