Cooper breaks ankle in training
MUNICH, Germany -- U.S. striker Kenny Cooper broke his ankle during training with the German club 1860 Munich. This was his first practice since returning from a loan with Plymouth Argyle in England's second division.
The team said on its website Friday that the 25-year-old player had surgery and it is hoped he can play in about three months. Cooper said he was hurt in a collision with a teammate.
Cooper moved to Munich from Dallas a year ago, but was loaned to Plymouth last winter. He returned to Munich on July 1.
