The Red Bulls will not be offering former New England defender Marshall Leonard or former MetroStars forward Diego Serna contracts, team sources told SBI on Monday.
Leonard and Serna were two of four non-roster invitees not invited to join the team’s next training camp in Austria. Midfielder Martin Nunez and former New Jersey Ironmen defender Mateus Dos Anjos were also left home.
Leonard had been seen as a candidate to be a left back and left winger but he didn’t quite fit as a left winger in a 3-5-2 and didn’t do enough to stand out ahead of incumbent left back Kevin Goldthwaite in a 4-4-2.
Serna was always a long shot to make the squad, having been out of the league for more than two years.
