Orlando City striker Cyle Larin has officially been cleared to return to league action.
According to mlssoccer.com, Cyle Larin has been cleared by Major League Soccer in an announcement on Tuesday.
This follows an assessment via the MLS SABH program (Substance Abuse and Behavioral Health) in which doctors cleared the Orlando City striker and allowed him to return to the club as long as he continues to participate in the program.
Larin missed three games while undergoing assessment and is a welcomed addition back into the squad. He will continue counseling whilst returning to action.
Orlando City Coach Jason Kreis stated the following – as quoted by Orlando Sentinal – after training on Tuesday:
“Cyle addressed the team before the session. So it’s obviously nice to have him back and nice to see that he’s regretful about his actions. And as we said before he left, once we take responsibility for our actions and apologize for that, we forgive and move forward.”
Coincidentally, his absence saw The Lions stumble and go on a poor run of results, drawing once and losing twice including a 4-0 thrashing at the hands of on form Chicago Fire.
By having Larin back in the fold, Orlando City will look to get off the schneid on Friday when the club visits Rio Tinto Stadium to battle Real Salt Lake.
