CHICAGO – Yuki Nagasato, the Japan international picked up by the Red Stars on May 24, 2017, has returned to Japan for rehabilitation with her doctors.

Nagasato arrived in Chicago on May 30 and was examined by team doctors, who were informed of a minor injury she received with her prior club in Germany. 

“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.
