Sandoval has been forced to go on blood thinners to try and clear the second blood clot. That means his season is over and while his soccer future is up in the air, Sandoval says he will continue to support the team. Sandoval played in 28 matches this season and scored five goals. He’s been with the team from their start in 2019.
