    HEREDIA, Costa Rica – Costa Rican side Herediano announced Friday that Marvin Obando underwent successful surgery on his left knee and will be out of action for up to six months.

     

    The 31-year-old, who was an unused substitute in the Florenses’ 6-1 CONCACAF Champions League win at Valencia in Haiti on August 8, tore his anterior cruciate ligament during a training session on August 13. He also missed the stretch run of the 2013 Torneo Verano with a right-knee injury.

     

    The defender is the son of Marvin Obando, who made one appearance for Costa Rica at the 1990 World Cup finals in Italy.

     

    Herediano returns to Champions League play on September 18, when it hosts Valencia at the Estadio Alejando Morera Soto Scotiabank in Alajuela.
