Jesus Ferreira Undergoes Successful Core Muscle Repair Surgery

FC Dallas Homegrown player set to return in four-to-five weeks 

FRISCO – FC Dallas forward Jesus Ferreira underwent a successful Core Muscle Repair procedure yesterday at Vincera Institute in Philadelphia, Pa.

The surgery was performed by Dr. William Meyers. Ferreira is expected to return in four-to-five weeks.

Ferreira, 17, made MLS debut on June 3, 2017 vs. Real Salt Lake. After coming on for Roland Lamah in the 71st minute, Ferreira became the second-youngest player in MLS history to score a goal when he brought down a pass from Michael Barrios and slid a shot past the goalkeeper.

Ferreira was also part of the teams that won the 2017 Dallas Cup Super Group and the 2015-16 U.S. Soccer Development Academy Championship.
