Montreal Impact left back Ambroise Oyongo will miss the rest of the Major League Soccer season after undergoing successful right knee surgery Tuesday to repair a ruptured patellar tendon.

Oyongo suffered the injury last Saturday in Cameroon's 1-0 victory over Morocco in a 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying game.

The 25-year-old defender was expected to be out for about six months, the Impact said in a release.

Oyongo set personal bests last season with 26 starts and five assists.
