We all know Coach Petke is the most outspoken in the business, but this just puts him at the top!
Earlier this week Real Salt Lake midfield player, Luke Mulholland announced on Instagram that he’s been battling chronic back pain since preseason camp. Unfortunately, despite all the efforts of doctors, they ordered that he needed to have surgery.
I’ve been battling chronic back pain since day ✌ of preseason camp. Despite best efforts, doctors have ordered I undergo surgery tomorrow. I still consider myself a fortunate athlete as I’ve never missed a game due to injury until this season. This is just a minor speed bump ✊ and I’ll be BACK 😁 in no time. LUUUUKE
After Luke’s surgery, he posted this to his Instagram Story & Twitter.
Overwhelmed by the number of people that reached out. One love pic.twitter.com/dNAMr9801t

Shortly after Coach Petke responded with this… 😂

We all know Coach Petke cares, and this is just one of his many funny responses to his players.
We wish you a speedy recovery Luke! We can’t wait to see you back on the field!
