No Kidding – Diego Jimenez is a Red BullBy: Dave Martinez | July 8th, 2008
Ladies and Gentlemen, left back may have just been filled. With a left foot.
Young Mexican Diego Jimenez, former starter for Tecos and the Mexican Under 23 Nationals, is on his way to New Jersey, so says Brian Lewis at the Post (great blog by the way). The best part? He already has a green card – so none of that waiting forever to see him on the pitch stuff.
Osorio made a big splash with his post game comments earlier in the week. Unrepentently, he has followed them up. With an attacking mid signed (Rojas), a destroyer (Pietravallo) and now, a left footed left back, Osorio will be looking to change the culture much like he did with the Fire last season – a midseason overhaul.
Red Bull players continue to ponder their futures.
“We’re turning the corner.” – My favorite Osorio quote from Lewis and friends. I don’t think I have ever heard a coach be so bold. Especially not in a major market professional league.
Great day all in all. Another signing is on its way for our sieve of a defense. A Honduran striker prospect with a familiar name is connected to our Bulls, pleasantly suprising me this morning (and probably a few of you out there too – I think I uncovered it this part of the hemisphere! Pat on my back !). And the front office continues to cover up the recent stink on the field with some great news off of it.
Keep it up.
Well, besides the on field stink stuff.
