SEATTLE, WASH. – Seattle Sounders FC today announced that forward Felix Chenkam underwent successful surgery for a herniated disc. The procedure was performed earlier today by Dr. Farrokh Farrokhi at Virginia Mason Medical Center in Seattle.
Chenkam, 19, was signed on May 25, 2018 from the club’s USL side. He ranks second on Sounders FC 2 with four goals scored in just 11 appearances this season. The Douala, Cameroon native tallied five markers in 19 games for S2 in 2017.
