Venezuelan playmaker Jorge Rojas has joined the New York Red Bulls in Washington D.C. today and will play against D.C. United in tomorrow night’s Eastern Conference clash at RFK Stadium.
Rojas wound up missing last week’s 3-0 win against Houston after an issue with his passport forced him to stay in Venezuela in order to secure his work visa. With that sorted out, Rojas is expected to regain his place in the starting lineup.
In other Red Bulls news, the club has signed Gambian striker Sainey Touray to a developmental contract. The Red Bulls moved up midfielder Sinisa Ubiparipovic to a senior roster spot vacated by traded goalkeeper Zach Thornton, freeing up a developmental roster slot for the 18-year-old striker, who is seen as a speedy project with potential who may not be ready to contribute much this season.
With Rojas in the fold, what lineup do you see Juan Carlos Osorio using against D.C. United? What do you think of the Touray signing? Share your thoughts below.
