Osorio denies interest in Liguera, has sights on two European-based players

Red Bulls head coach Juan Carlos Osorio squashed rumors that he was interested in Uruguayan midfielder Martin Liguera, stating that he hadn’t even heard of the player.

"No player with that name," Osorio said when asked about Liguera. "I have different No. 10s, to be honest. He’s not on my list."

Osorio called his trip to South America last weekend ‘hectic, but productive’, saying that he went to watch two players and has decided not to sign either player.

"I can tell you that I am very sure of who I don’t want to sign," Osorio said. "I’m always asked who the two or three players are that we are going to sign, but again, I can answer that by saying we still have two more months to go.

Osorio did say that he is considering signing two European-based players currently playing in competitive leagues.

"There are two guys right now playing in Europe. We might sign them," Osorio said. "One thing I’m not going to do is rush."

Osorio wouldn’t reveal who the two European-based players are, but did state that the club’s most important positions of need are for a left-sided midfielder and left-footed center back/fullback.
