So much for Kaka to the Red Bulls?
In a stunning move, the New York Red Bulls acquired Vancouver front man (and former Peter Nowak whipping boy) Sebastien LeToux in exchange for burner Dane Richards and allocation money.
It’s a thought-provoking move on the surface as LeToux likes to meander south in search of the ball on offense and that’s precisely the role that Thierry Henry has been playing. LeToux is not a true #10 and it will be interesting to see how the Red Bulls to deploy him.
Strange things are afoot in Vancouver where the pretenders were doing a create contender impression. Out went midfield maestro Davide Chumiento this week; in came the aging Barry Robson last week.
What will Dane Richards bring that Darren Mattocks doesn’t?
