Stuart Holden's injury 'very serious'

CHICAGO -- Stuart Holden's run of bad luck continues.

The U.S. midfielder sprained his right knee early in the CONCACAF Gold Cup final against Panama on Sunday, and it appears to be another "very serious" injury, coach Jurgen Klinsmann said. Holden was out of the game for more than two years after previous injuries to his right knee.

"We are very, very concerned about Stuey's situation," Klinsmann said after the 1-0 U.S. victory. "I'm not a doctor ... but Stuart's a player that when something happens, he knows. It's not looking good right now."

Holden took a knock on his left knee about 20 minutes into the first half, but he grabbed his right knee after he hit the ground. Trainers worked with him briefly on the field before he got off and walked to the sideline, where they continued to work on him. As Holden sat on the bench, his head buried in his hands, teammates patted him on the head and shoulders trying to console him.

He walked to the locker room a short time later, and was limping visibly when he rejoined his teammates for the victory ceremony.

"He's a good friend and he's the soul of this team. Has been this trip," Landon Donovan said. "I'm bummed out for him."

Holden, who plays for Bolton in England, initially injured his right knee against Manchester United on March 19, 2011. He returned from surgery to play in a League Cup match that September, then had another operation on the same knee eight days later. He did not return to Bolton until this Jan. 15, and did not rejoin the Americans until their May camp.

"We are very, very sad for him," Klinsmann said. "It's not looking very good."
