Injuries have certainly been an issue. But right now, they’re also dealing with rumors that Rodolfo Pizarro, who’s been sidelined with a hip injury, isn’t happy playing South Florida.
Manager Phil Neville addressed the issue Thursday in their return to training.
“He’s an Inter Miami player. He’s injured at this point in time. We can’t stop the speculation. But the speculation why he’s not playing is because he’s been injured. He’s gone away with Mexico and he’s injured,” Neville said. “So I’m not going to answer any more questions on Rodolfo Pizarro. I think I’ve spoken and I’ve told you how many times that he’s a big part of what we want to do here and he’s happy here.”
As for the team’s next match, they’ll be seeking redemption against D.C. United on the road.
The match, which you will be able to watch on MY33, will be held at Audi Field and is set to kick off at 8 p.m.READ MORE: Fort Lauderdale Shaken Baby Case From 1984 Leads To Murder Charge.
