We now have photographic evidence that Gustavo Bou is getting close to making his return to the field.
The Argentine striker was last seen in the second leg of the Concacaf Champions League quarterfinals against Pumas. He played 71 minutes before exiting with a leg injury. Bou has missed four league games and isn’t expected to play against D.C. United today.
On Friday, physical therapist Franco Bombicino posted a video on Instagram of Bou running. Bombicino also posted a series of pictures that featured a caption that said “Black Panther is back.” On Apr. 14, head coach Bruce Arena told Zolak and Bertrand that Bou was “a week or two away.”
