Of all the new faces at Red Bulls practice today, there was one unfamiliar face who hadn’t been mentioned before.
That player is Costa Rican Under-23 national team midfielder Brandon Poltronieri, a 22-year-old former player for Brujas in Costa Rica. A left-sided player who can also play in a defensive midfield role, Poltronieri is getting a look from the REd Bulls but I’m not sure how good a chance he has of making the team. With Jorge Rojas, Dave Van Den Bergh, Danleigh Borman and David Roth all capable of playing on the left side, there doesn’t appear to be much room for Poltronieri.
If you’re wondering what he looks like as a player, here’s a YouTube video of him in action:
What do you think? Can he help the Red Bulls or is he not really an upgrade? Share your thoughts below.
