The Chicago Red Stars said Wednesday that Japan international Yuki Nagasato, recently acquired by the club, has returned to Japan for rehab on a minor injury she received while with her former club, FFC Frankfurt in Germany.

The team said that Nagasato arrived in Chicago on May 30 and was then examined by team doctors, who were informed of the injury.


“We will provide updates when we can but hope to have her rejoin the team in the coming weeks,” said Red Stars owner Arnim Whisler in a team press release.

The Red Stars announced the signing of Nagasato, a veteran of three FIFA Women’s World Cups and a two-time Olympian, on May 24.
