Caio Alexandre, midfielder for Vancouver Whitecaps FC, will miss the rest of the 2021 MLS season after undergoing surgery on his left foot on Monday for a fifth metatarsal fracture.

The 22-year-old Brazilian was recruited by Vancouver from Botafogo in March and signed a deal that runs through 2024. On August 14, he was injured during a training session.

“We are happy to hear that Caio’s surgery was a success,” Vancouver head coach Marc Dos Santos said in a release. “He is resting now and in the coming weeks our performance team will work closely with him as we build towards a full 2022 preseason with Caio.”
