The New York Red Bulls will be heading to Bradenton with a total of 35 players, including several trialists hoping to make the 24-man roster.
Red Bulls head coach Juan Carlos Osorio revealed on Friday that he planned on bringing in four European-based trialists for looks during the team's training camp in Bradenton, Florida next week. While he would not reveal their identities, Osorio did say where the players were from. One is Scottish, one is Mexican-American and two are Central American.
Osorio also revealed that the Red Bulls put in rookie free agent discovery claims on defenders Ryan Mirsky (SMU) and Calum Angus (Saint Louis). Both players took part in the MLS Combine but went undrafted. Mirsky is joining the Red Bulls in Florida while Angus is not. Sources have told SBI that Angus is pursuing other professional opportunities.
The Red Bulls are also expected to bring along two to three of the free agents who trained with the team this week after making the initial cut from a free agent camp last week. Osorio did not reveal those players' names.
What do you think of this news? Who do you think Osorio plans on bringing on? Think Mirsky can challenge for a roster spot?
