Juan Carlos Osorio tried very hard to go unnoticed, but that apparently isn't something easy for an MLS coach to do in El Salvador.
The New York Red Bulls head coach was in Santa Ana, El Salvador, watching the CD FAS-Luis Angel Firpo clash and, according to one report, scouting FAS and El Salvadorean national team left back Alfredo Pacheco.
"I'm here watching soccer, just that," Osorio told a local journalist when asked why he was in town. Apparently nobody was buying that he traveled all the way to El Salvador just to take in a soccer game.
Pacheco (pictured here in 2007 Gold Cup action) is a 26-year-old left back with good attacking qualities who fits the mold of what Osorio is looking for. The Red Bulls have a working list of top fullbacks in Central America and Pacheco just might have the combination of ability and reasonable asking price to be the winner in the Red Bulls fullback search.
What do you think of Pacheco? Could he be the answer to the Red Bulls' left back need? Still wondering if and when a new central defender will show up?
