Aurelien Collin Injury Update: Hamstring twinge not serious

New, 2 comments

Aurelien Collin's early exit from Sporting KC's 4-0 win over Montreal is not cause for concern according to the centerback.

Immediately after Dom Dwyer put Sporting Kansas City up 3-0 against the Montreal Impact, Aurelien Collin said he felt a twinge in his hamstring, causing him to leave the match in the 76th minute.

"I'm a wise old man, but I used to be crazy and would have finished the game," Collin said after the game. "But we were up 3-0 and we have an important game next week and I think that with ten minutes left I was okay to go out and to be safe for the next game."

Collin also said that he "feels good" about his hamstring, that he will be okay for next week's match with the New England Revolution and that it was a wise decision to come out.

Peter Vermes jokingly said that coming out of the game was the best decision Collin made all night.

"He knows me," Collin said when he heard about Vermes' comments. "Four years ago I would have stayed on the field, now I'm a wise old man."

This news comes good for Sporting KC who, due to the season-ending injury of Ike Opara, have been left very thin at centerback depth. A severe Collin injury would have made the situation much worse.
